While solving chapter 7, the Rational Expressions, I encountered significant difficulties when translating the multiplication and division of the expressions. The challenge was on the errors significantly while multiplying or when dividing (Blitzer, 2016). When solving the equations, I could make some mistakes even without knowing, so the final solution for the problem would be wrong. The only way to ensure that I did not earn the error on any of the questions I solved was to revisit the solution to ensure I made no errors. Thus, the sole purpose of reviewing the key is to create a systematic way of ensuring that the answer is clear. Another way to ensure that there are no errors when solving the expressions is by being keen when solving these expressions and reviewing the reading materials when you encounter a challenging spot. Therefore, it is tough to make any errors while solving any of the rational expression questions.
