MAT 222 Week 1 DQ 1 Can't Cancel Terms

Can’t Cancel Terms. In this discussion, you are assigned two rational expressions with which you will then do a variety of math work. Remember that each polynomial must be fully factored and that you can only cancel factors; you cannot cancel terms. Read the following instructions in order and view the example to complete this discussion:
a. Find your two rational expressions in the list below based on your first initial.
initial is
A or L
7 – 3b
b2 – 12b + 20
3b – 7
b2 – 20b + 100
B or K
m2 + 2m – 24
m2 - 3m
m2 - 8m + 16
5m2 + m
C or J
k2 + k - 42
1 – k
k2 – k – 30
k – 1
D or I
x2 – 36
3x + 6
x2 + 12x + 36
9x + 18
E or H
7w – 2
16w2 – 1
21w – 6
16w2 – 8w + 1
F or G
10b – 6
3b2 – 12b + 12
5b – 3
3b2 - 12
M or Z
x2 – 25
2x + 1
x2 – 10x + 25
8x + 4
N or Y
m2 + 2m – 15
3m2 - m
m2 - 6m + 9
m2 + 2m
O or X
4w – 3
4w2 – 1
3 – 4w
4w2 – 8w + 1
P or W
6b – 4
2b2 – 8b + 8
3b – 2
2b2 - 8
Q or V
k2 + k - 30
2 – k
k2 – k – 20
k – 2
R or U
4w – 3
9w2 – 1
20w – 15
9w2 – 6w + 1
S or T
x2 – 49
2x - 1
x2 – 14x + 49
1 – 2x
d. 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.)
e. Add the two rational expressions together. Factor again if possible, and present the answer in lowest terms.
f. 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...
