How do you use Wolfram|Alpha to calculate these?
10 years ago
So, I got a few problems in my work like this:
v^2-16 , V^2-9v+20
the directions say "Find equivalent expressions that have the least common denominator"
The example when solved, looks like this:
then it has me do the same with the second problem, which ends up looking like this:
I want to figure out how to calculate these kinds of problems in Wolfram|Alpha, I've tried just about everything. I can't even search the internet for how to solve these, as I don't even know what kind of problems these are classified as.

I'm not sure if there's a comma between between those fractions or if they are multiplied together.
Have you tried entering the fractions into Wolfram|Alpha? Here is how you would enter the product of those two fractions:
Note that you can see different forms of the solution which are factored and Wolfram|Alpha removes common denominators.
