Working with division in Arithmetic is a lot like division of monomials in Algebra. In arithmetic, you use your knowledge of factors to help you. Look at this example of division using factors. When you review the strategy you use in Arithmetic, algebra will make more sense. Simply show the factors, cancel out the factors (which is division) and you will be left with your solution. Follow the steps through to fully understand the sequence involved to divide monomials.
