Factoring Trinomials, a = 1 - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

Multiplying rational expressions is basically two simplifying problems put together. When multiplying rationals, factor both numerators and denominators and identify equivalents of one to cancel. Dividing rational expressions is the same as multiplying with one additional step: we take the reciprocal of the second fraction and change the division to multiplication.
