Unformatted text preview: The L east C ommon M ultiple (LCM) is the product of each of these factors raised to a power equal to the greatest number of times that the factor occurs in the polynomials. STEP 3:Write each rational expression using the LCM as the common denominator. STEP 4:Add or subtract the rational expressions. Use LCM to subtract and simplify : STEP 1: STEP 2: Simplifying a Mixed Quotient • Method 1: Treat the numerator and denominator of the mixed quotient separately, performing whatever operations are indicated and simplifying the results. • Method 2: Find the LCM of the denominators of all rational expressions that appear in the mixed quotient. Multiply the numerator and the denominator of the mixed quotient by LCM and simplify....
