How to Solve a Rational Equation

1. How to Solve a Rational Equation

A rational equation is one that contains fractions. Yes, we will be finding a common denominator that has 'x's. But no worries! Together we will use a process that will help us solve rational equations every time!

Rational Equations: Practice Problems

2. Rational Equations: Practice Problems

Mario and Bill own a local carwash and have several complex tasks that they must use rational equations to solve for an answer. Enjoy learning how they solve these equations to help them with some of their day-to-day tasks.

How to Multiply and Divide Rational Expressions

3. How to Multiply and Divide Rational Expressions

Multiplying and dividing rational polynomial expressions is exactly like multiplying and dividing fractions. Like fractions, we will reduce. With polynomial expressions we use factoring and canceling. I also give you a little mnemonic to help you remember when you need a common denominator and when you don't.

How to Add and Subtract Rational Expressions

4. How to Add and Subtract Rational Expressions

Adding and subtracting rational expressions brings everything you learned about fractions into the world of algebra. We will mix common denominators with factoring and FOILing.

Practice Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions

5. Practice Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions

Adding and subtracting rational expressions can feel daunting, especially when trying to find a common denominator. Let me show you the process I like to use. I think it will make adding and subtracting rational expressions more enjoyable!

Multiplying and Dividing Rational Expressions: Practice Problems

6. Multiplying and Dividing Rational Expressions: Practice Problems

Let's continue looking at multiplying and dividing rational polynomials. In this lesson, we will look at a couple longer problems, while giving you some practice multiplying and dividing.

Solving Rational Equations with Literal Coefficients

7. Solving Rational Equations with Literal Coefficients

Watch this video lesson and be amazed at how you can solve a rational equation with numbers and letters in it. Learn how to solve rational equations with literal coefficients, and you will learn how to solve any rational equation you come across!
