1
Rational Expressions – Product & Quotient PRODUCT STEPS : 1. Factor ( if needed ) 2. Simplify any common factors QUOTIENT STEPS : 1. Change the problem from a division problem to a multiplication problem. To do this, keep your first fraction, change the division sign to multiplication, reciprocal ( flip ) the second fraction 2. Follow the PRODUCT steps

Rational Expressions – Product & Quotient EXAMPLE # 1 :

3
Rational Expressions – Product & Quotient EXAMPLE # 1 : When you have simple terms, I like to get all the numbers and variables grouped together…and when multiplying, order doesn’t matter, so line up any terms that can be cancelled…

4
Rational Expressions – Product & Quotient EXAMPLE # 1 : Remember your rules for dividing variables…subtract exponents

6
Rational Expressions – Product & Quotient EXAMPLE # 1 : EXAMPLE # 2 : Change the division problem to a multiplication problem…keep 1 st fraction, multiply, flip the 2 nd fraction…

7
Rational Expressions – Product & Quotient EXAMPLE # 1 : EXAMPLE # 2 : Simplify, cancel or divide constants / variables / expressions…multiply what is left in the numerator / denominator - 4 1
