Write the answer in lowest terms.Find and state the common denominator between the two expressions. Build up each expression so that it has the common denominator. (Remember not to do any canceling at this point since you need those extra factors for the common denominator.)Add the two rational expressions together. Factor again if possible, and present the answer in lowest terms.Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion.

Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing the thought behind your math work.):Principal rootProduct ruleQuotient ruleReciprocalnth root

Refer to Inserting Math Symbolsfor guidance with formatting. Be aware that with regards to the square root symbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a radical and not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much of an expression is included in the radical itself unless you use parenthesis. For example, if we have √12 + 9 it is not enough for us to know if the 9 is under the radical with the 12 or not.  Thus we must specify whether we mean it to say √(12) + 9  or  √(12 + 9). As there is a big difference between the two, this distinction is important in your notation.

Another solution is to type the letters “sqrt” in place of the radical and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in the radical as described in the second method above. The example above would appear as either “sqrt(12) + 9” or  “sqrt(12 + 9)” depending on what we needed it to say.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.

Solve the compound inequalities as demonstrated in Elementary and Intermediate Algebra and the Instructor Guidance in the left navigation toolbar, being careful of how a negative x-term is handled in the solving process. Show all math work arriving at the solutions.Show the solution sets written algebraically and as a union or intersection of intervals. Describe in words what the solution sets mean, and then display a simple line graph for each solution set as demonstrated in the Instructor Guidance in the left navigation toolbar.Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):Compound inequalitiesAndOrIntersectionUnion

Refer to Inserting Math Symbolsfor guidance with formatting. Be aware that with regards to the square root symbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a radical and not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much of an expression is included in the radical itself unless you use parenthesis. For example, if we have √12 + 9 it is not enough for us to know if the 9 is under the radical with the 12 or not.  Thus we must specify whether we mean it to say √(12) + 9  or  √(12 + 9). As there is a big difference between the two, this distinction is important in your notation.

Another solution is to type the letters “sqrt” in place of the radical and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in the radical as described in the second method above. The example above would appear as either “sqrt(12) + 9” or  “sqrt(12 + 9)” depending on what we needed it to say.
