Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions Advanced Math Topics Mrs. Mongold

Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions Finding Least Common Multiples and Least Common Denominators! o Use prime factorization o Example: Find the LCM of 6 and 4 6 = 2·3 4 = 2 2 LCM= 2 2 ·3 = 12

Find the LCM 1. a 2 – 6a + 9 and a 2 + a -12

Find the LCM 2. 18r 2 s 5, 24r 3 st 2, and 15s 3 t

Find the LCM 3. 12a 2 b 4, 27ac 3, and 18a 5 b 2 c

Find the LCM 4. p 3 + 5p 2 + 6p and p 2 + 6p + 9

Find the LCM 5. q 2 – 4q + 4 and q 3 – 3q 2 + 2q

Find the LCM 6. 2k 3 – 5k 2 – 12l and k 3 – 8k 2 +16k

Find the LCM 7. x 3 -x 2 – 2x and x 2 – 4x + 4
