**CHAPTER SEVEN:**RATIONAL ALGEBRAIC FUNCTIONS Section 7-7: Products and Quotients of Rational Expressions**Objectives:**• Be able to multiply or divide several rational expressions and simplify the result.**Multiplication**• To multiply two fractions, multiply their numerators together and multiply their denominators together. That is:**Division**• Division of fractions is carried out by first applying the definition of division:**Simplified**• A rational expression is simplified when its numerator and denominator have no common factors other than 1. • We simplify rational expressions by canceling.**Canceling**• Canceling in a fraction means dividing the numerator and denominator of the fraction by the same common factor.**HOMEWORK:**PAGE 360 #5-33 odds, and#49
