This video revolves around solving rational equations in Algebra 2. When you are given a rational equation, you have to find the greatest common factor and multiply all fractions to get that common factor. If a fraction already has that common factor, then no further step is necessary for that one. Next, you have to multiply all fractions by the greatest common factor to get rid of all denominators. Finally, the remaining equation is simple math and you only need to solve the equation for the variable, which is typically "x". Getting rid of fractions in rational equations is the simplest way to solve them.
