Question

# A Student divided the rational expression as follows :

Describe and correct the errors the student made ?

Hint:

### The mathematical operation of dividing one rational number with other rational number is called division of rational numbers.

We are asked to describe and correct the error made by the student while dividing the expression.

## The correct answer is: = y/x

### Step 1 of 2:

The given expression is:

Rewrite the division as the product of the first rational expression and the reciprocal of the second.

Thus, we get:

Now, multiply them:

Step 2 of 2:

The error that the student made was not taking the reciprocal of the second expression for multiplication. If it was done, they would have gotten the correct answer.

Whenever you divide two expressions, make sure to take the reciprocal of the second and then multiply to get the answer.
