In this lesson, we learn how to add and subtract algebraic fractions with different denominators by finding the least common denominator and simplifying each fraction. The transcript walks us through two examples, one with a simple solution and another that requires factoring and multiplying to cancel out terms. The lesson emphasizes the importance of recognizing that there can be different ways to write the final answer and suggests practicing these problems until they become clear.
Shows how to add and subtract algebraic fractions by getting a common denominator.
