Textbook Problem

For Problems 9-50, simplify each rational expression. (Objective 2)

x 2 14 x + 49 6 x 2 37 x 35

To determine

To Find:

The expression by simplifying the given rational expression.

Explanation

Approach:

A rational expression is defined as the quotient obtained by a division of two polynomials in the form of p(x)q(x) where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials in such a way that the variable x does not assume values such that q(x)=0.

For values of x where q(x) and k(x) are both nonzero expressions, then by the fundamental principle of fractions, for all polynomials p(x), the following holds.

p(x)k(x)q(x)k(x)=p(x)q(x).

Calculation:

The given rational expression is x214x+496x237x35.

Factorise the numerator x214x+49.

x214x+49=x27x7x+49=x(x7)7(x7)=(x7)(x7)

Factorise the denominator 6x237x35
