Question

# When Multiplying , is it necessary to make the restriction x ≠ 0 ? Why or Why not ?

Hint:

### We make the restriction for a rational expression to avoid values for which the denominator attains a zero value.

We are asked to find whether it’s necessary to make the restriction x≠0 for the given expression.

## The correct answer is: he questions was just 15 over straight x, we would definitely had to make the restriction.

### Step 1 of 1:

No, it is not necessary to make such a restriction.

The denominator in a fraction cannot be zero because division by zero is undefined. But here, the values get cancelled even before applying any values to it. So, we can avoid giving restriction to the expression. But, it the questions was just , we would definitely had to make the restriction.

Division by zero is not defined in a real plane.
