               Add and Subtract Rational Expressions
                     with Unlike Denominators
1. Find the least common denominator of the fractions.

2. Make the fractions equivalent.

a.        =                                b.        =                                     c.                 =
     x + 1 x2(x + 1)                            t − 2 t2 − 4                                     x2 + 3


3. Add the fractions in problem (1).
