Seeking help!! I am aware that in order to add/subtract rational expressions, one must find the least common denominator first. I would like to know how to solve rational expressions with a common factor in the denominator. Thanks!

    If the denominators are factorable, you should factor them as a first step and then find the Least Common Multiple which will be your common denominator.

    Is that all? Are there no more steps?

    After you have written the fractions with the common denominator, then you can add the numerators.
