OpenStudy (anonymous):

lets make blank = 7 then denominators are \[7, a^2, 7a^3\] so a "common denominator" would be \[7a^3\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

then you would have \[\frac{3}{7}\times \frac{a^3}{a^3}+\frac{7}{a^2}\times \frac{7a}{7a}-\frac{7}{a^3}\times \frac{7}{7}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

now all the denominators are \[7a^3\] so you can compute in the numerator and get \[\frac{3a^3+49a-49}{7a^3}\] feel free to pick a number other than 7 if you pick x you will get \[\frac{3a^2+x^2a-x^2}{xa^3}\]
