You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!
Polynomials are those expressions that have variables raised to all sorts of powers and multiplied by all types of numbers. When you work with polynomials you need to know a bit of vocabulary, and one of the words you need to feel comfortable with is 'term'. So check out this tutorial, where you'll learn exactly what a 'term' in a polynomial is all about.
When you divide one number by another, the result is called the quotient. This is true for rational expressions too! When you divide one rational expression by another, the result is called the quotient. This tutorial defines the quotient of a rational expression and shows you an example. Take a look!
In division, the number you are dividing by is called the divisor. The same thing is true if you're working with expressions instead of numbers! Learn more about divisors in this tutorial.
In division, the number that is being divided is called the dividend. The same thing is true if you're working with expressions instead of numbers! Learn more about dividends in this tutorial.
Dividing polynomials? Use long division! Follow along as this tutorial shows you how to perform long division with polynomial. Check it out!
