A monomial is one number that stands on its own such as the number 8 or 9x or 15x2. To divide two monomials is really very easy. Let’s look at the following example.
25x3 ÷ 5x2
Here we can easily divide 25 by 5 giving us the answer of 5. However, our variables x3 and x2 are different. So we need to break these out as follows:
x3 = x, x, x
x2 = x, x
Next you cross off a corresponding x from each variable. When you do this, it leaves one x left. This means the solution for our problem is: 25x3 ÷ 5x2 = 5x
