A rational algebraic expression is an expressions which is of the formOriginally Posted byDenMac21

,

where and are polynomials in x. Note this does not require

that the coefficients in either polynomial be rational.

With this definition is a rational algebraic expression

(even though is not a rational number).

Clearly with this definition is not a rational algebraic expression.

Assuming the remaining expression should be: and that and

are polynomials then this is not a rational algebraic expression.
