About this unit

Rational expressions bring together what we know from fractions with our polynomial skills. They arise in a variety of contexts involving rates, particularly when there are unknowns or changing values in the denominator. We'll model with basic rational expressions, then use the polynomial properties to extend our fraction operations.
