6-73.

This problem is a checkpoint for multiplying and dividing rational expressions. It will be referred to as Checkpoint 6A.

Multiply or divide each pair of rational expressions. Simplify the result.

1. $\frac { x ^ { 2 } - 16 } { ( x - 4 ) ^ { 2 } } \cdot \frac { x ^ { 2 } - 3 x - 18 } { x ^ { 2 } - 2 x - 24 }$

2. $\frac { x ^ { 2 } - 1 } { x ^ { 2 } - 6 x - 7 } \div \frac { x ^ { 3 } + x ^ { 2 } - 2 x } { x - 7 }$

Check your answers by referring to the Checkpoint 6A materials located at the back of your book.

Ideally, at this point you are comfortable working with these types of problems and can solve them correctly. If you feel that you need more confidence when solving these types of problems, then review the Checkpoint 6A materials and try the practice problems provided.
