- On Board: (6x2 - 7) / 2x

- "Now when we were working on rational expressions, we had polynomials that were in fraction form where a polynomial was a numerator and denominator. Because of that, we needed to turn the problem into multiplication and multiply by the reciprocal of the second rational expression."
