2Unit 4 Rational and ReciprocalFunctions and EquationsRational Expressions:Rational expressions are fractions that have a polynomialnumerator and denominator.Ex)2x 7x2 93x 22 y 4x5 y 3xAny time a variable is found in a denominator the possibility ofrestrictions exist.Ex) For each rational expression determine all non-permissiblevalues.a)5t4 st 2b)3xx (2 x 3)c)2 p 1p 2 p 12

3Equivalent Rational Expressions:Remember when the numerator and denominator of a fraction ismultiplied or divided the same value the resulting fraction isequivalent.Ex)7xx 2
