# For problems 1-12, perform the indicated operations involving rational numbers. Be sure to express your answers in reduced form. (Objective 1) 1 4 + 5 6

To determine

To solve:

The given operation involving rational numbers.

Explanation

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)â‹…k(x)q(x)â‹…k(x)=p(x)q(x).

Calculation:

The given expression is 14+56
