How do you rationalize a denominator?

You multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same expression - and do it in such a way that the denominator becomes rational.Example 1: The denominator is square root of 5, which I will call root(5). If you multiply top and bottom by root(5), the denominator will become rational. Example 2: The denominator is root(2) + root(3). If you multiply top and bottom by root(2) - root(3), then the denominator will become rational.

What is the disadvantage of completing a square?

Just working with fractions if the coefficient of x is not an even number, however I would not call it a disadvantage because fractions are beautiful numbers.

What do you call a ratio with a denominator of 1?

unit rate someone said this in class pretty sure the right answer.

Write 9.9 as a mixed number?

We also call them mixed fractions. 9.9 = 9 9/10 ( Nine and Nine-tenths) Nine is the integer and 9/10 is the fraction We call it mixed number because you are "mixing" integers and fractions. You can also write it as an IMPROPER fraction by doing this 99/10.

How do you find LCM and HCF of fractions?

You don't. LCM and GCF (HCF) refer to whole numbers. You can find the LCM of two whole numbers that happen to be denominators, but in that case we call it the LCD. You can find the GCF of two whole numbers that happen to be the numerator and denominator of a fraction, and that will let you know whether the fraction can be simplified.You can use the GCF of the denominators to find their LCM (LCD). For example,1/18 + 1/24GCF = 6 because 18 = 6*3 and 24 = 6*4, thus LCD = 18*4 = 24*3 = 721/18 + 1/24 = (1*4)/(18*4) + (1*3)/(24*3) = 4/72 + 3/72 = 7/72.
