How to Divide Rational Expressions

How to Divide Rational Expressions

Dividing Rational Expressions, divide a Rational Expression by another one, can be complicated. In this blog post, you will learn how to divide rational expressions in a few simple steps. Method of Dividing Rational Expressions To divide rational expression, use the same method we use for dividing fractions. (Keep, Change, Flip)Keep the first rational expression, change the division sign to multiplication, and flip the numerator and denominator of the second rational expression. Then, multiply numerators and multiply denominators. Simplify as needed. Examples Dividing Rational...

How to Evaluate Logarithm

How to Evaluate Logarithm

Since learning the rules of logarithms is essential for evaluating logarithms, this blog post will teach you some logarithmic rules for the convenience of your work in evaluating logarithms. Necessary Logarithms Rules Logarithm is another way of writing exponent. \(\log_{b}{y}=x\) is equivalent to \(y=b^x\). Learn some logarithms rules: \((a>0,a≠0,M>0,N>0\), and k is a real number.) Rule 1: \(\log_{a}{M.N} =\log_{a}{M} +\log_{a}{N}\) Rule 2: \(\log_{a}{\frac{M}{N}}=\log_{a}{M} -\log_{a}{N} \)Rule 3: \(\log_{a}{(M)^k} =k\log_{a}{M}\)Rule 4: \(\log_{a}{a}=1\) Rule...

How to Solve Natural Logarithms

How to Solve Natural Logarithms

Logarithms that have Base e (natural logarithms) are important in mathematics and some scientific applications. This blog post explains the applications of natural logarithms with examples. Definition of Natural Logarithms A natural logarithm is a logarithm that has a special base of the mathematical constant \(e\), which is an irrational number approximately equal to 2.71. The natural logarithm of \(x\) is generally written as \(ln \ x\), or \(log_{e}{x}\). Examples Natural Logarithms - Example 1: Solve this equation for \(x: e^x=6\) Solution: If \(f(x)=g(x)\),then:...

How to Rationalize Radical Expressions

How to Rationalize Radical Expressions

As you may know, radical expressions cannot be in the denominator, so in this article, we will teach you how to get rid of them by rationalizing radical expressions. A step-by-step guide to Rationalizing Radical Expressions Radical expressions cannot be in the denominator. (number in the bottom) To get rid of the radicals in the denominator, multiply both numerator and denominator by the radical in the denominator. If there is a radical and another integer in the denominator, multiply both numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator. The conjugate of \((a+b)\) is...

How to Solve Rational Equations

How to Solve Rational Equations

An equation that consists of at least one Rational expression is a Rational equation, and in this article, we will teach you how to solve this type of equation using two methods. A step-by-step guide to solve Rational Equations For solving rational equations, we can use following methods: Converting to a common denominator: In this method, you need to get a common denominator for both sides of the equation. Then, make numerators equal and solve for the variable.Cross-multiplying: This method is useful when there is only one fraction on each side of the equation. Simply multiply the...

How to Add and Subtract Radical Expressions

How to Add and Subtract Radical Expressions

To add and subtract radical Expressions, you need to follow a few simple tips, which in this article will be taught to you along with examples. Adding and Subtracting Radical Expressions Only numbers and expressions that have the same radical part can be added or subtracted.Remember, combining"unlike" radical terms is not possible.For numbers with the same radical part, just add or subtract factors outside the radicals Examples Adding and Subtracting Radical Expressions - Example 1: Simplify: \(6\sqrt{2}+5\sqrt{2}\) Solution: Since we have the same radical parts, then...
