# Math Help - Simplify 24rs/9t divided by 8r/7st

1. ## Simplify 24rs/9t divided by 8r/7st

My answer is 7sSquare/3, was wondering do i need to factorise 7sSquare or maybe my answer is wrong

2. $\dfrac{24rs}{9t} \div \dfrac{8r}{7st}$

To divide fractions, flip n multiply: $\dfrac{24rs}{9t} \times \dfrac{7st}{8r}$

You can then cancel anything which appears on the top and bottom. For checking I get an answer of $\dfrac{21s^2}{9}$

edit: which cancels to $\dfrac{7s^2}{3}$ so your answer is fine (and doesn't need factorising)

3. 21sSquare/9 can be further simplified to 7sSquare/3 ?

Next time, show the likes of sSQUARE as s^2.
