In this video the instructor shows how to divide rational expressions. To divide rational expressions follow this simple four step approach. In the fist step change the division to multiplication by flipping the second fraction. Now the original division simplifies to multiplication. In the second step factor the terms of numerators and denominators in the two fractions. In the third step cancel the common terms in the numerator and the denominator. Now finally in the fourth step multiply all the numerators to arrive at the new numerator and multiply all the denominators to arrive at the new denominator, which gives the simplified fraction. This video shows how to divide rational expressions.
