RATL 3 | Lesson 1 | Solutions (Evaluating Rational Expressions)

Solutions:

1)

a). for \(x = 2\), solution is undefined; for \(x = -3\), solution is \(\large\frac{-14}{5}\); \(x= -6\), solution is \(\Large\frac{-41}{5}\)

b). for  \(x = 2\), solution is \(\Large\frac{8}{5}\);  for \(x = -3\), solution is undefined; for \(x = -6\), solution is -8

c). for \(x = 2\), solution is undefined; for \(x = -3\), solution is -1; for \(x = -6\), solution is \(\Large\frac{23}{16}\)

2).  Any time there is a zero in the denominator, there is no solution for that value of x.
