Read and Write Algebraic Expressions Using Parentheses
How does an algebra learner know what to put in parentheses when writing an algebraic expression? This video, which models how to use parentheses, begins by directing viewers to find the comma in the written algebraic phrase. The comma tells learners that everything before it is a separate expression and is to be done first.

How Do You Simplify an Algebraic Fraction by Canceling Common Factors?
Use prime factorization to simplify this algebraic fraction. When the factorization is done then cancel out all values in which a value from the numerator and a value from the denominator equal 1. And what is left over is then the simplified form of the algebraic fraction.
