Alg. 12.0 – Students simplify fractions with polynomials in the numerator and denominator by factoring both and reducing them to the lowest
terms (11.2)

challenging problems by using these techniques (11.3-11.5)
Alg. 15.0 – Students apply algebraic techniques to solve rate problems, work problems, an percent mixture problems (11.1, 11.6)

Simplifying Rational Expressions
By finding the GCF of the numerator and denominator and then dividing both the numerator and denominator
by that GCF:

4 ( x  7)
2( x  3)
2 ( x  3)
x3


6( x  2) 2 3( x  2) 3( x  2)
5 ( x  7)


5
By factoring both the numerator and denominator and then dividing both the numerator and denominator
by the same binomial:
2 x  6 2 ( x  3) 2


3x  9 3 ( x  3) 3
Multiplying Rational Expressions
Cross-cancel any common factors or Binomials
Multiply the Numerators then multiply the
denominators
 Check to see that it is completely simplified
Adding & Subtracting Rational Expressions with
LIKE denominators:
 Use the LIKE denominator as the new denominator
 Simplify the rational expression by whatever
method is appropriate
Solve Rational Expressions with Cross-Products:

Dividing Rational Expressions
Rewrite as a multiplication problem by:
 replacing the  with
 taking the reciprocal of the divisor (2nd expression)
 Multiply
Adding & Subtracting Rational Expressions with
UNLIKE denominators:
 Find the LCD (least common denominator)
 Multiply the numerator & denominator of each rational
expression to create expressions with LIKE denominators
 Then add or subtract as appropriate
Work Problems:
Work Rate Time = Work Done (usually 1 job)
Work Rate = Work Done  Time
Bob takes three hours to mow one lawn.
Bob’s Work Rate is 1 job per hour.
3
Sue takes 2 hours to mow one lawn.
Sue’s Work Rate is 1 job per hour.

If they work together then:
0  x 2  4 x  12
0  ( x  6)( x  2)
x  6 or x  2
