## How do you simplify complex fractions?

How to simplify complex fractions

1. Convert mixed numbers to improper fractions.
2. Reduce all fractions when possible.
3. Find the least common denominator (LCD) of all fractions appearing within the complex fraction.
4. Multiply both the numerator and the denominator of the complex fraction by the LCD.

## How do you simplify complex fractions with square roots?

Simplifying complex fractions with square roots

1. Multiply both the numerator and denominator by the radical that can remove the radical in the denominator.
2. Evaluate the expression, if possible by multiplying the terms and further simplifying the numerator and denominator by taking out any common factors.

How do you simplify complex fractions with variables?

Simplify complex fractions with variables. In order to simplify complex variables, you must first consider the numerical values separate from the variable. In the case of 24x/48x, you would look at the numbers alone to see if they have any factors. These numbers have the number 6 in common. So, divide it by 6.

How do you simplify complex rational expressions?

Assess the rational expression. To use this method,you should see at least one binomial in your expression.

• Find a monomial factor common to the numerator and denominator. The factor must be common to all terms in the expression.
• Cancel out the common factor.
• Rewrite the expression after cancelling out the monomial.
• ### How do you simplify complex numbers?

Write the division of two complex numbers as a fraction. When you want to divide two complex numbers,set up the problem as a fraction.

• Find the conjugate of the denominator. The conjugate of a complex number is a useful tool.
• Multiply the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator.
