How do you evaluate the expressions #(4x^4)/( 24x^3)# given x= 3 and y=5?
Plug in 3 for x.
If x=3, then plug that into the expression (was one of the x's supposed to be y?).
Evaluate the exponents first. In order of operation, exponents come before multiplication.
Or, you could first simplify the
Then the problem becomes
Plugging in 3 for x:
However, is it possible you entered the problem incorrectly? We never used y= 5. Was one of the x's supposed to be y?
