EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students rewrite rational number expressions by collecting like terms and combining them by repeated use of the distributive property. Students work in pairs to write the expressions in standard form. Reconvene as a class and review the steps taken to rewrite the expressions, justifying each step verbally as you go. Solve each problem, leaving your answers in standard form.
