In case of numbers Division is the inverse operation of multiplication but the same is applicable for the division of algebraic expressions also.

**Division of a monomial by another monomial**

To divide a monomial by a monomial, first express the numerator and the denominator in their irreducible form, and then cancel the common factors.

**Division of a polynomial by a monomial**

To divide a polynomial by a monomial, either divide each term of the numerator by the denominator or factorise the numerator by the common factor method.

**Division of a polynomial by a polynomial**

To divide a polynomial by a polynomial, first factorise the numerator and the denominator by using the appropriate method and then cancel the common factors.

Dividend = Divisor Ã— Quotient + Remainder.

Hint: Division is the inverse operation of multiplication.

2x Ã— (2x+3) = 4x^{2} + 6x, then

(4x^{2} + 6x) Ã· 2x = (2x+3)
