Simplify Rational Expressions Practice 7 - Visualizing Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    Our numerator is a difference of two perfect squares. So we can factor it as 2x
  • 0:05 - 0:11
    plus 5y times 2x minus 5y. This denominator isn't identical to one of our
  • 0:11 - 0:16
    factors, but it is an opposite polynomial for this factor. We can see that the
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    2xs are opposite in sign and the 5ys are also opposite in sign. So these two
  • 0:21 - 0:27
    factors simplify to be negative 1 and were left with negative 1. Times 2x plus
  • 0:27 - 0:33
    5y. We can distribute our negative 1 to get our answer, negative 2x minus 5y.
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    Fantastic work if you got that expression.
