111 3 x x/ x/ x/ 1 ᎏ8 = ᎏᎏ = ᎏ5 x x/ x/ x/ x x x x x x 111 The complete rule for division is as follows: The base remains the same. xm ᎏ = xm − n xn if m > n xm 1 ᎏ n = ᎏ n−m x x if n > m In simple English, in division, subtract the larger exponent minus the smaller; the term goes wherever the larger exponent was. EXAMPLE 18— 18a4b5c6d7e8 2b5 − 2e8 − 1 2b3e7 ᎏᎏ = ᎏᎏ =ᎏ 9a7b2c6d8e a7 − 4d8 − 7 a3d 18 ᎏ=2 9 c6 ᎏ6 = 1 c EXAMPLE 19— 4 ᎏ is reduced. 10 4x6y3 2x4 a. ᎏ 2 9 = ᎏ 10x y 5y6 When the whole top cancels, you must put the 1 (one) on top.

The opposite of 3 is −3 because 3 + (−3) = 0. The opposite of −6b is 6b because −6b + 6b = 6b + (−6b) = 0. The opposite of 0 is 0. 38 BOB MILLER’S ALGEBRA FOR THE CLUELESS 1. Fractions cause the most problems. So we get rid of them at once. 1. Multiply each term by the least common denominator (LCD). The purpose is to make all equations look the same, so that you get very good very fast. 2. If the x terms are only on the right, switch the sides. 3. Multiply out all parentheses, brackets, and braces.

ANSWER 12 or +12 EXAMPLE 4— N OT E You should think of this as an adding problem. −3 − 4 Think (−3) + (−4) Lose 3; lose 4 more. ANSWER −7 Integers Plus More EXAMPLE 5— −7 + 3 Think (−7) + (+3) Lose seven; gain three: lose four. ANSWER −4 NOTE −7 + 3 is the same problem as 3 − 7 (+3 + −7). EXAMPLE 6— −7 + 9 Think (−7) + (+9) Lose seven; gain 9: up 2. ANSWER +2 or 2 NOTE −7 + 9 is the same as 9 − 7 = (+9) + (−7) = 2. You should read these examples until they make sense. Here are the rules in words: Addition 1: If two (or all) of the signs are the same, add the numbers without the sign and put the sign that is in common.
