Re: dividing rational expression.An improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator is greater than the denominator (like 7/5 which can be expressed as a proper fraction as 1 2/5). An improper fraction can be converted into a proper fraction by dividing the numerator by the denominator. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #3 20060327 02:33:47
Re: dividing rational expression.okay. but i'm not really sure how to go about doing the division. I tried factorising it and cancelling out but it doesn't work. searching on the net doesnt yield anything useful too.
