Teach you how to apply rules of fraction multiplication and division with polynomials AKA rational expressions.

This packet contains a video explanation of how to multiply and divide rational expressions

Tutorial

Rational Expression: Made up of polynomials, usually in the form of a fraction (i.e. (x^{2} - 4)/(x))

Polynomial: The word means "many terms," so it is an expression made up of many terms, either added, subtracted, or multiplied together. Once you start dividing terms, you have a rational expression!

A nice commentary on how to deal with division and multiplication of rational expressions. For help on simplifying rational expressions, see Nate Muckley's packet.
