Operations with Fractions In this section, you will review operations involving fractional expressions such as 2 , x x 2 ϩ 2x Ϫ 4 , and xϩ6 1 . ϩ1 Ίx 2 The first two expressions have polynomials as both numerator and denominator and are called rational expressions. A rational expression is proper if the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator. For example, x x2 ϩ 1 is proper. If the degree of the numerator is greater than or equal to the degree of the denominator, then the rational expression is improper.
