Answer:
Step 1: Find the LCD if needed.
The first denominator has the following two factors:
The second denominator has the following factor:
The third denominator has the following factor:
Putting all the different factors together and using the highest
exponent, we get the following LCD:
Step 2: Write equivalent fractions using the LCD if
needed.
Since the first rational expression already has the LCD, then
we do not need to change this fraction.
Rewriting the second expression with the LCD:
Rewriting the third expression with the LCD:
Step 3: Combine the rational expressions
AND
Step 4: Reduce to lowest terms.
