# For Problems 59-68, simplify each rational expression. You may want to refer to Example 12 of this section. (Objective 2) n 2 − 49 7 − n

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(n)q(n) where p(n) and q(n) are polynomials in such a way that the variable n does not assume values such that q(n)=0.

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

p(n)â‹…k(n)q(n)â‹…k(n)=p(n)q(n).

Calculation:

The given rational expression is n2âˆ’497âˆ’n.

Factorise the numerator n2âˆ’49.

n2âˆ’49=(n2âˆ’72)=(n+7)(nâˆ’7)

Factorise the denominator 7âˆ’n
