In this video the instructor shows how to solve rational equations. If you have fractions in your equation, then you need to factorize the denominators first. Now compute the least common denominator of all the denominators of the fraction. Next multiply both sides of the equation with the least common denominator. This cancels out all the denominators of all the fractions and you are left with a linear equation. Now simply multiply the remaining terms in the numerator and add common terms to arrive at the result. So to solve rational equations involving fractions, the first thing you need to do is get rid of the fractions. This video shows how to solve rational equations.
