# For Problems 41-64, simplify each complex fraction. (Objective 2)64. 1 + x 1 + 1 x

To determine

To Find:

The simplest form of the given complex fraction:

1+x1+1x

Explanation

Approach:

Rational expression, a quotient obtained by division of two polynomials in form of p(x,y)q(x,y) where p(x,y) and q(x,y) are polynomials in such a way that the variables x, y do not assume values such that q(x,y)=0.

If ab and cd are rational, then addition or subtraction of rational formed by making the denominator equal using LCD and perform the operation on the numerators as follows:

And,

Same algebra is used for rational expression.

Calculation:

Here, the given expression is 1+x1+1x.

LCD of the first term in the expression is x.with xâ‰ 0.
