Simplifying a rational expression? You could factor the numerator and denominator and then cancel like factors. Learn what to do 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.
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!
Constants are parts of algebraic expressions that don't change. Check out this tutorial to see exactly what a constant looks like and why it doesn't change.
Factoring trinomials can by tricky, but this tutorial can help! Follow along as a trinomial is factored right before your eyes! Then, check your answer by using the FOIL method to multiply the binomials back together and see if you get the original trinomial.
Factoring trinomials can by tricky, but this tutorial can help! Follow along as a trinomial is factored using the guess and check method. What, no possibilities work? The trinomial must be prime! Watch this tutorial and see what happens!
Got a fraction with a polynomial in the numerator and denominator? You have a rational expression! Learn about rational expressions in this tutorial.
Dividing polynomials? Use long division! Follow along as this tutorial shows you how to perform long division with polynomial. Check it out!
Dividing two rational expressions? Turn it into a multiplication problem by multiplying by the reciprocal of the second rational expression (the divisor)! This tutorial shows you how to do just that! Then, you'll see how to perform the multiplication and simplify to get you answer!
