In this lesson, we learn how to solve a rational equation that turns into a quadratic equation. We can eliminate the fractions by either multiplying both sides by the least common denominator, or rewriting the problem so all the terms on each side have the same denominator. Once we have eliminated the fractions, we are left with a quadratic equation that we can solve using the quadratic formula.
Example of solving a Rational Equation that becomes a quadratic equation.
