We can multiply two algebraic terms to get a product, which is also an algebraic term.
Evaluate 3pq3× 4qr
= 3 × p × q × q × q × 4 × q × r
= 3 × 4 × p × q × q × q × q × r
= 12 × p × q4 × r
Evaluate –2a3b× 3ab2c
= –2 × 3× a3× a × b × b2× c
= –6× a4× b3× c
We can divide an algebraic term by another algebraic term to get the quotient. The steps below show how the division is carried out.How to divide algebraic terms or variables?
