Algebraic Solution to Rational Equations

This tutorial illustrates the process of solving rational equations. The three examples are 5/(y+4)=4+3/(y-2); 1/(3x+18)-1/(2x+12)=1/(x^2+6x); x/(x-2)+1/(x+2)=8/(x^2-4).
If you already have some knowledge of solving rational equations, you should try to work these out yourself before watching the video -
