A fractional expression is a mathematical expression that contains a numerator and a denominator separated by a fraction bar. It can also be referred to as a rational expression.
To simplify a fractional expression, you need to factor both the numerator and denominator and then cancel out any common factors. This will result in a simplified form of the expression.
The main rules for simplifying a fractional expression include: factoring the numerator and denominator, cancelling out common factors, and reducing to lowest terms by dividing out any remaining common factors.
Simplifying a fractional expression can make it easier to work with and solve in further mathematical calculations. It can also help to identify any patterns or relationships within the expression.
No, not all fractional expressions can be simplified. Some may already be in their simplest form or may not have any common factors to cancel out. In these cases, the expression cannot be simplified any further.
