16a power of 2, -8a,),,(1/4a-1) are these two prolems polynomials, to be multiplied togethor? is 4a to the third power-18a squared+8a, used the distributive property

Jazmin:

Here are the steps:
First, factor the equation (I know that the plus symbol did not print out in your equation)
(4A-1)x(4A-1) (correct?)

Therefore:

(4A-1)x(4A-1) / (4A-1)

= (1 x 1) / 1

= 1

### Is 16.6 a rational number?

Yes. A rational number is a number that can be expressed as the ratio of two whole numbers. In this case, 16.6 is the ratio of 166 to 10 (or 83 to 5). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rational_number

It is not possible to give a general answer to such a question. If you have a fraction, simplifying it entails dividing by factors that are common to the denominator and the numerator. If you have an algebraic expression such as a polynomial you simplify it by combining like terms until you have only one term of each type. A trigonometric expression can be compacted, etc.

### What can constitutes a rational expression

Haha it's not an expression which shows you are not crazy.

It is a fractional formula in which the top and bottom line are algebraic polynomials, whether low order (like x + 1) or higher order (like 4x^3 + 8x^2 - 7x + 5). See here

If your calculator is SetUp for Math Input/Output (MATHIO), a result that gives a radical will remain in radical form. If a radical appears in a denominator the whole expression is rationalized: Any radical left is put in the numerator. 1/Sqr(3) is displayed as Sqr(3)/3.

### (a + 2b)(a2 - 2ab - 4b2)

I believe that the algebraic expression should be written as:
(a + 2b)(a^2 - 2ab - 4b^2)

which can be rewritten as:
(a + 2b)^2 * (a - 2b)

The simplified form of this expression is:
(a^3 - 2a^2b - 4ab^2 + 2a^2b - 4ab^2 - 8b^3)

which can then be further simplified as:
(a^3 - 8b^3)

### How do I get my calculater to and and simplify completely 5xto the third power over 6xyto the second power divided by 10x over 3xy to the fourth power for variable y

The calculator does not have a CAS (Computer Algebra System). Therefore it cannot do symbolic algebra. It can only calculate numerical values.

You can enter algebraic expressions with symbols (X, variable), Y, A,B,C,D, and M but they will just be evaluated with the current values of A, B,C,D, Y, and M. If you use the SOLV program the unknown variable must be X.

### Variables

Hello,
This calculator cannot handle symbolic algebra.
Use the rules to simplify the expressions: Get rid of the parentheses using distributivity od multiplication with respect to addition; group similar terms (terms with x, terms without x).
Hope it helps.
