Dividing and Simplifying Algebraic Fractions
By Jim Cihak
Learners follow step-by-step instructions for dividing algebraic fractions. They begin by reducing the fractions to their simplest form. Immediate feedback is provided. This activity has audio content.
In this animated object, learners use an algebraic formula to solve the following problem: An airplane travels a certain distance with the wind in the same amount of time that it takes to travel a shorter distance against the wind. Given a constant wind speed, what is the speed of the plane without a wind?
