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
–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?
Step 1: Write the division of the algebraic terms as a fraction.
Step 2: Simplify the coefficient.
Step 3: Cancel variables of the same type in the numerator and denominator.
Step 1: Factorize the algebraic expressions.
Step 2: Cancel factors in the numerator and denominator where possible.
