**9.1 Multiplying and Dividing Rational Expressions**

Complex fractions

2
**Definition of a Rational Expression**

In mathematics, a rational function is any function which can be written as the ratio of two polynomial functions.

3
**Since they are fractions**

Simplify a Rational Expression. Divide the same expression from numerator and denominator

4
**Since they are fractions**

Simplify a Rational Expression. Divide the same expression from numerator and denominator

5
**Since they are fractions**

There are numbers that will not work in the Rational expression. They are -7, 3 and -3. Why?

6
**Since they are fractions**

Factor out the denominator. Can you see why -7, 3 and -3 do not work as answers?

7
**Since they are fractions**

Factor out the denominator. -7, 3 and -3 do not work as answers because they make the denominator zero. They are called Excluded Values.

8
Simplify Assume the denominator cannot equal zero.

9
**Simplify Assume the denominator cannot equal zero.**

Factor out a negative one to move things around

10
Simplify Assume the denominator cannot equal zero.

11
