      Cross multiply and put it all over one denominator. Then simply simplify

      Hi

      Algebraic fractions are simply fractions with algebraic expressions on the top and/or bottom.

      When adding or subtracting algebraic fractions, the first thing to do is to put them onto a common denominator (by cross multiplying).

      When adding or subtracting algebraic fractions, the first thing to do is to put them onto a common denominator (by cross multiplying).

      e.g. 1 + 4

      (x + 1) (x + 6)

      = 1(x + 6) + 4(x + 1)

      (x + 1)(x + 6)

      = x + 6 + 4x + 4

      (x + 1)(x + 6)

      = 5x + 10

      (x + 1)(x + 6)

      Solving equations

      When solving equations containing algebraic fractions, first multiply both sides by a number/expression which removes the fractions.

      Example

      Solve 10 -2 = 1

      (x + 3) x

      multiply both sides by x(x + 3):

      ∴ 10x(x + 3) - 2x(x + 3) = x(x + 3)

      (x + 3) x

      ∴ 10x - 2(x + 3) = x2 + 3x [after cancelling]

      ∴ 10x - 2x - 6 = x2 + 3x

      ∴ x2 - 5x + 6 = 0

      ∴ (x - 3)(x - 2) = 0

      ∴ either x = 3 or x = 2

      Just remember to attempt every question,even it looks difficult, you get attempt marks from writing the first sentence
