For Problems 13-66, add or subtract the rational expressions as indicated. Be sure to express your answers in simplest form. (Objective 2) x − 2 5 − x + 3 6 + x + 1 15

To determine

To solve:

The given operation involving rational expressions.

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 expression is x25x+36+x+115
