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!
Numerators and denominators are the key ingredients that make fractions, so if you want to work with fractions, you have to know what numerators and denominators are. Lucky for you, this tutorial will teach you some great tricks for remembering what numerators and denominators are all about.
Polynomials are those expressions that have variables raised to all sorts of powers and multiplied by all types of numbers. When you work with polynomials you need to know a bit of vocabulary, and one of the words you need to feel comfortable with is 'term'. So check out this tutorial, where you'll learn exactly what a 'term' in a polynomial is all about.
If two things are equivalent, they are the same. Equivalent expressions are expressions that are the same, even though they may look a little different. If you plug in the same variable value into equivalent expressions, they will each give you the same value when you simplify. Learn more about equivalent expression by watching this tutorial!
The FOIL method. No, not aluminum foil! The FOIL method stands for First, Outer, Inner, and Last. It's a popular way multiply two binomials together. This tutorial makes the FOIL method a breeze!
Factors are a fundamental part of algebra, so it would be a great idea to know all about them. This tutorial can help! Take a look!
Trying to factor a binomial with perfect square factors that are being subtracted? You have a difference of squares problem! Learn how to factor a binomial like this one by watching this tutorial.
Got a fraction with a polynomial in the numerator and denominator? You have a rational expression! Learn about rational expressions 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!
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.
