Polynomials can contain a single term, two terms or more number of terms. The polynomial expression with only one term is called a Monomial. Monomials can be divided by following the general rules of division. Dividing monomials calculator is the online tool which can easily simplify the given expression.


Example 1: Divide the given monomial 20x3 by 2x.

The given two algebraic expressions are monomials since they consist of only one term.

Dividing the given two monomials, the expression looks like this  20x3/2x

First we can divide the numbers by each other  20/2 = 10

Then, according to the Law of Exponents, since bases (x) are same and are divided with each other, hence their

exponents are subtracted.


x3/x = x3-1 = x2

Now combining the answers we get  20x3/2x = 10x2


 
Example 2: Divide the given monomial (-45x5) by 5x2.

The given two algebraic expressions are monomials since they consist of only one term.

Dividing the given two monomials, the expression looks like this  -45x5/5x2

First we can divide the numbers by each other  -45/5 = -9

Then, according to the Law of Exponents, since bases (x) are same and are divided with each other, hence their

exponents are subtracted.


x5/x2 = x5-2 = x3

Now combining the answers we get -45x5/5x2 = -9x3
