In this video, we are going to multiply and divide rational expressions.
We can start by either directly perform the operation or reduce across.
First, reduce the numbers that are across from each other
Further reduce, which can be done vertically with the 8 and the 4
And we have
With variables, it is the same concept
Factor the expressions if necessary
Division is similar to multiplication.
Remember to Keep, Change, Flip
Keep the first fraction, change the operation from division to multiplication, and flip the second fraction
Factor if necessary
