 # Solving Rational Equations

Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, games and activities to help Algebra students learn how to solve rational equations.

The following figure shows how to solve rational equations. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions. Solve rational equations
Example:
18/(3x - 12) + 1/(x -4) = 7/3
(7x + 3)/(x - 2) = 68/(x2 - 4) + (7x - 3)/(x + 2) Solve rational equation
Example:
(x + 1)x = 4/3

Solve rational equation
Example:
(x - 4)/(x2 - 3x - 1) + (x + 3)/(x2 - 25) = (2x + 13)/(x2 + 7x + 10)
Solve rational equation
Example:
(x - 3)/(x2 - 2x - 15) + (x + 2)/(x2 - 25) = (2x + 13)/(x2 + 8x + 15)
