# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 10/30

We’ve moved on to the next phase of the rational expressions unit: Complex Fractions. Don’t be intimidated by their name! These are expressions that involve “nested fractions,” meaning the numerator and denominator of the expression are both fractions (or a sum/difference of fractions) themselves.

Remember the basic process for simplifying these beastly expressions:

1. Combine fractions in the numerator (finding a lowest common denominator and so on) so you have one single rational expression
2. Combine fractions in the denominator (LCD, etc.)
3. Keep the top fraction, flip the bottom fraction, and change the operation to multiplication (KFC)
4. Simplify.

There are several videos online you could watch with more examples. I recommend this one and its follow-up here. The video posted here is also good. If you want more, search for “Simplifying Complex Fractions”
