For Problems 13-66, add or subtract the rational expressions as indicated. Be sure to express your answers in simplest form. (Objective 2)
The given operation involving rational expressions.
Rational expression demarcate as a quotient obtained by a division of two polynomials in the form of where and are polynomials in such a way that the variable x does not assume values such that .
For values of x where and are both nonzero expressions, then by the fractions fundamental principle, for all polynomials , the following holds.
The given expression is .
The LCD of the denominator is .
Therefore, the value of given expression is
