To determine

To Solve:

The given equation.

Explanation

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 multiplying them by appropriate expressions and equating the denominators using LCD and perform the operation as below:

And,

Same algebra is used for rational expression
