Example 7: Solve for Q. QP – X = Y First add X to both sides. QP - X = Y +X +X QP =Y+X Then divide both sides by P. QP Y + X P = P Q = Y +P X Operations opposite to those in the original equation were used to isolate Q.

Remember, the rules for multiplication of signed numbers apply here as well. Dividing fractions To divide fractions, invert (turn upside down) the second fraction (the one “divided by”) and multiply. Then reduce if possible. Example 13: Divide. (a) 61 ' 15 = 61 # 51 = 65 1 3=1 (b) 19 ' 13 = 1 # Y Y 9 1 3 3 Here too the rules for division of signed numbers apply.
