# RATL 2 | Lesson 2 | Practice (Adding Rational Expressions)

Use the example and the procedures you wrote to add the following rational expressions:

1. $$\dfrac{1}{x+3}+\dfrac{1}{x+5}$$
2. $$\dfrac{2}{x+7}+\dfrac{3}{x+7}$$
3. $$\dfrac{3+x}{x+7}+\dfrac{4+x}{x+5}$$
4. $$\dfrac{x-3}{x+8}+\dfrac{x+1}{x-6}$$

$$\dfrac{2x^2+26}{x^2+2x-48} \hspace{5mm} \dfrac{5}{x+7} \hspace{5mm} \dfrac{2x^2+19x+43}{x^2+12x+35} \hspace{5mm} \dfrac{x^2+26}{x^2+2x-48} \hspace{5mm} \dfrac{2x+8}{x^2+8x+15}$$
