# How do you do operations with rational expressions?

**Operations on Rational Expressions**

- Multiply and
**divide rational expressions**. - Add and subtract
**rational expressions**. Add and subtract**rational expressions**with like denominators. Add and subtract**rational expressions**with unlike denominators using a greatest common denominator. Add and subtract**rational expressions**that share no common factors.

Also know, what are rational operations?

A **rational** expression is nothing more than a fraction in which the numerator and/or the denominator are polynomials. Here are some examples of **rational expressions**. 6x−1z2−1z2+5m4+18m+1m2−m−64x2+6x−101.

Also, what are examples of rational functions? **Examples of Rational Functions** The **function** R(x) = (-2x^5 + 4x^2 - 1) / x^9 is a **rational function** since the numerator, -2x^5 + 4x^2 - 1, is a polynomial and the denominator, x^9, is also a polynomial.

Accordingly, how do you define a radical?

In mathematics, a **radical** expression is defined as any expression containing a **radical** (√) symbol. Many people mistakenly call this a 'square root' symbol, and many times it is used to determine the square root of a number. However, it can also be used to describe a cube root, a fourth root, or higher.

What makes a function rational?

**Rational function**. In mathematics, a **rational function** is any **function** which can be defined by a **rational** fraction, i.e. an algebraic fraction such that both the numerator and the denominator are polynomials. The coefficients of the polynomials need not be **rational** numbers; they may be taken in any field K.
