Question

Which algebraic expression represents the phrase below? The quotient of the opposite of a number squared and three

2 Answer

  • (-x)^2/3

    Hope this helps!
  • Answer:

    [tex]\frac{(-x)^2}{3}[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Opposite of a number is the value that gives 0 ( additive identity ) if added to the number.

    Generally, by changing the sign we can get the opposite of a number.

    Let x be the required number,

    So, its opposite is -x,

    Also, we get quotient after division,

    Now, given phrase,

    The quotient of the opposite of x squared and three

    [tex]\implies \frac{(-x)^2}{3}[/tex]

    Which is the required expression.
