    @butterflydreamer Need assistance with this last one, still having a little trouble understanding 4/s^2 and -7/7s^2

    again, simplify the second fraction... the 7/s will cancel out in -7/7s^2 = -1/s^2

    So now we're comparing: 4/s^2 and -1/s^2 :)

    well we're finding the LCD right? Lowest common denominator... denominator just refers to the number/value on the BOTTOM of a fraction :) So if we're comparing: |dw:1434371102290:dw|

    @butterflydreamer so the least common denominator is s^2?
