Divide Fractions Review - Visualizing Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:07
    First we cube the quantity 2t. The quantity 2t cubed is 8t cubed. Now that our
  • 0:07 - 0:12
    fraction is simplified, we can change division to multiplication, and multiply
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    by the reciprocal of the second fraction. We just flip this fraction over. I'm
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    going to multiply these fractions straight across to get negative 24t to the
  • 0:21 - 0:25
    4th, divided by 40t to the 8th. You might have chosen to go ahead and simplify
  • 0:25 - 0:30
    the common factors here. Which is great. We know 8 divides into 24 three times
  • 0:30 - 0:35
    and 8 divides into 40, 5 times. When I look at my t's, I notice that I'll have
  • 0:35 - 0:40
    four more t's in the denominator, so I'll have negative three divided by five
  • 0:40 - 0:45
    times t to the fourth. That's some amazing algebra if you got that one correct.
