Week 15 – Solving Rational Equations

This week, we have learned about solving rational equations.

First of all the most important part when solving multiple rational equations is to see whether the denominator’s the same.

For example, lets look at this equation.

We can see that to make the equation the same on both sides, (x+6) was multiplied on the left side and (x+3) was multiplied on the right side.

Then, to make sure we have one equation, 8x+24 was moved to the left side and we could see that there is a common of Xs’.

We’ve calculated 6x-8x (-8x is when 8x was moved to the left) and got the result as shown above.

At last, we factored the equation having 2 Xs’

X=6, X=-4
