  1. Looking back at our work, we can simplify a complex fraction by following these

  2. steps. First we want to find the LCD of the internal fractions, each of these.
  3. Then we multiply our complex fraction by the LCD divided by the LCD. We can do
  4. this since this is really a form of 1. We'll change what this fraction looks
  5. like, but we won't change its value. Then we'll distribute the LCD to each term,
  6. like we did here, and then we'll simplify to get our final answer. Let's see if
  7. you can do the next one in a couple of steps.
