Math 71 6.6 – Rational Equations 1

A rational equation is an equation that has one or more rational expressions in it. To solve, we start by multiplying both sides of the equation by the _______, which will clear fractions. Note: Always check your solutions when solving rational equations. (Why? Because multiplying by the LCD might introduce extra solutions that don’t solve the original equation.) 2
