 Question 132142: 27) The numbers for which the rational expression is undefined are Answer by jim_thompson5910(29613)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given expression Set the denominator equal to zero. Remember, dividing by 0 is undefined. So if we find values of r that make the denominator zero, then we must exclude them from the domain. Factor the left side (note: if you need help with factoring, check out this solver) Now set each factor equal to zero: or or Now solve for r in each case So our solutions are or Since and make the denominator equal to zero, this means and make the rational expression undefined (remember you cannot divide by zero)
