Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to simplify a rational monomial. By subtracting the exponents from the same basis, you can divide the monomials. It is important to only work with the numbers that have the same basis, and simplify them accordingly. Through this process, you will end up with a simplified expression that is both easy to read and understand.

Lesson Description:

Simplify a rational monomial

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
