In this lesson, we review complex fractions and clearing fractions from pre-algebra. The instructor walks through two examples, explaining the steps to find the lowest common denominator and distribute to each term in the parentheses. After clearing the fractions, we are left with basic arithmetic to find the answer. By the end of the lesson, students will have a solid understanding of complex fractions and clearing fractions to prepare them for beginning algebra.
