1. 8.6 Solve Rational Equations VOCABULARY Cross multiplying

2. VOCABULARYCross multiplying A method of solving a simple rational equation for which each side of the equation is a single rational expression. Equal products are formed by multiplying the numerator of each expression by the denominator of the other.

3. 20 5 = - - 2 x 5 x 2 Example 1Solve a rational equation by cross multiplying

4. 20 5 = - - 2 x 5 x 2 Example 1Solve a rational equation by cross multiplying Step 1: Cross Multiply

5. 20 5 = - - 2 x 5 x 2 Example 1Solve a rational equation by cross multiplying Step 1: Cross Multiply 20(x-2) = 5(2x-5)

6. 20 5 = - - 2 x 5 x 2 Example 1Solve a rational equation by cross multiplying Step 1: Cross Multiply 20(x-2) = 5(2x-5) Step 2: Distribute (multiply)

7. 20 5 = - - 2 x 5 x 2 Example 1Solve a rational equation by cross multiplying Step 1: Cross Multiply 20(x-2) = 5(2x-5) Step 2: Distribute (multiply) 20x-40 = 10x-25

8. Step 3: Move all x’s to the left of the equal sign.

9. Step 3: Move all x’s to the left of the equal sign. 20x-40 = 10x-25 -10x -10x

10. Step 3: Move all x’s to the left of the equal sign. 20x-40 = 10x-25 -10x -10x 10x - 40 = -25

11. 10x - 40 = -25 Step 4: Get x all by itself

12. 10x - 40 = -25 10x - 40 = -25 +40 +40 Step 4: Get x all by itself

13. 10x - 40 = -25 10x - 40 = -25 +40 +40 Step 4: Get x all by itself 10x = 15

14. 10x - 40 = -25 10x - 40 = -25 +40 +40 Step 4: Get x all by itself 10x = 15 10x = 15 10 10

15. 10x - 40 = -25 10x - 40 = -25 +40 +40 Step 4: Get x all by itself 10x = 15 10x = 15 10 10 x = 1.5

16. - - 6 12 = + - x 2 x 1 Checkpoint: 1solve the equation by cross multiplying

17. - - 6 12 = + - x 2 x 1 Checkpoint: 1solve the equation by cross multiplying -6(x-1) = -12(x+2)

18. - - 6 12 = + - x 2 x 1 Checkpoint: 1solve the equation by cross multiplying -6(x-1) = -12(x+2) -6x+6 = -12x-24

19. - - 6 12 = + - x 2 x 1 Checkpoint: 1solve the equation by cross multiplying 6x+6 = -24 -6(x-1) = -12(x+2) -6x+6 = -12x-24

20. - - 6 12 = + - x 2 x 1 Checkpoint: 1solve the equation by cross multiplying 6x+6 = -24 6x = -30 -6(x-1) = -12(x+2) -6x+6 = -12x-24

21. - - 6 12 = + - x 2 x 1 Checkpoint: 1solve the equation by cross multiplying 6x+6 = -24 6x = -30 -6(x-1) = -12(x+2) x = -5 -6x+6 = -12x-24
