Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the teacher shows how to determine the zeros and multiplicity of a polynomial with fractions. The teacher explains that you can get rid of fractions by multiplying everything by the denominator's reciprocal. Then, they factor the polynomial and find the zeros and their multiplicities, which in this case are x= -2 and x=1 with multiplicity 1.

Lesson Description:

Determine the zeros and multiplicity when give a polynomial with fractions

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

    I would prefer the 1/3 to be factored out and then simplified.
