Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm retaking the GRE soon and I keep making stupid algebra mistakes in my calculus problems so I'm going through a textbook from 1965 that is helpful but has me stumped on some problems. I hope someone can steer me in the right direction.

1/(a-b)(a-c) + 1/(c-a)(c-b) + 1/(b-a)(b-c)

Is there a way to simplify this? If I start multiplying out everything to get the LCD my final answer will be huge. Thanks in advance
