In this lesson on dividing rational expressions, the instructor demonstrates how to divide rational expressions by first multiplying by the reciprocal and then factoring the numerators and denominators to cancel factors to reduce them to a simplified form. Through examples, the instructor shows how to factor expressions and cancel common factors. Students are encouraged to use the laws of exponents and factorization to make the process simpler.
