## Multiplying Monomials

When you multiply monomials, you will need to perform two steps:

Multiply the coefficients (constants)

Multiply the variables, using the famous laws of indices!

### Dividing Monomials

Let’s start by taking a look at a few problems in “expanded form”. Once you examine these examples, you’ll discover the rule on your own!

Both numerator and denominator get raised to the third power. We have to apply the Power of a Power Property and multiply the exponents. Then you subtract the exponents for the final division expression.
