Adding rational expressions together? Don't have common denominators? No problem! Find the least common denominator (LCD) and change each rational expression into an equivalent expression with that LCD. Once you have common denominators, you're ready to add and simplify! Watch it all in this tutorial!
Subtracting rational expressions? Don't have common denominators? No problem! Find the least common denominator (LCD) and change each rational expression into an equivalent expression with that LCD. Once you have common denominators, you're ready to subtract and simplify! Watch it all in this tutorial!
When adding or subtracting rational expressions, you need have common denominators just like any other fraction. If you don't have common denominators, then you'll need to find the least common denominator (LCD) and use it to get those denominators to be the same. Learn how to find the LCD of two rational expressions by watching this tutorial!
Adding rational expressions together? If they have a common denominator, just add the numerators together and simplify. Just like you would with any other fractions! Watch the process in this tutorial.
Subtracting rational expressions? If they have a common denominator, just subtract the numerators and simplify. Just like you would with any other fractions! Watch the process in this tutorial.
When you're working with fractions, you may need to find the least common denominator (LCD) in order to get the fractions to have a common denominator so that you can add or subtract them. The LCD is the smallest multiple that the denominators have in common. Learn about the LCD in this tutorial!
