Multiplying Rational Expressions Test
About Multiplying & Dividing Rational Expressions:

To multiply two or more rational expressions, we find the product of the numerators and place the result over the product of the denominators. When we are done, we simplify. To divide rational expressions, we multiply the first rational expression by the reciprocal of the second.
