Divide to simplify the left side of the equation. To divide an algebraic expression by a monomial, divide each term of the expression by the monomial.
Each term on the left side of the equation is equal to each term on the right side of the equation.
Therefore, , and the missing denominator must be .
Substituting the missing denominator into the equation, we now have:
Since each term on the left side is equal to each term on the right side of the equation, we know that .
Multiply both sides of this equation by to find the value of the missing numerator.
Therefore, the missing numerator is .
The complete original equation is:
