Divide and state the quotient in simplest form 2. multiply and state in simplest form

I have been helping a student do dividing and stating the qoutient problems. We completed 8 out of the ten and I believe they are correct. However these two I would like a second opinion on that shows work.

NUMBER 1. Divide and state the qoutient in Simplest form

9y^2 / y^2+2y+1 DIVIDE BY 36y/y^2-1


2. Multiply and state the product in simplest form

27y / y^2 - 1 multiplied by y^2 + y / 36y^2

1. factor, flip the divisor, multiply, then simplify.

2. factor, then multiply and simplify.

Let's see what you come up with ...

How can anyone give an "opinion" on whether what you have done is right or not if you do not show what you have done?!

You are an alleged mathematics tutor.

You must have grouping symbols around the denominators and one of the numerators. If you are really a math tutor,
then I would have expected to see them there without any trouble.


9y^2/(y^2 + 2y + 1) divided by 36y/(y^2 - 1)

27y/(y^2 - 1) multiplied by (y^2 + y)/(36y^2)

Again, note the above quote.
