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.
In this tutorial you'll see how to apply the distributive property. Remember that this is important when you are trying to simplify an expression and get rid of parentheses!
Combining like terms together is a key part of simplifying mathematical expressions, so check out this tutorial to see how you can easily pick out like terms from an expression
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!
Got a fraction with a polynomial in the numerator and denominator? You have a rational expression! Learn about rational expressions in this tutorial.
