    Given R = (1/a) + (1/b) + (1/c), express R as a rational expression.

    Let me see.

    LCD on left side is abc.

    So, abc ÷ a = bc.

    Then, abc ÷ b = ac.

    Finally, abc ÷ c = ab

    On the right side, I get (bc + ac + ab)/(abc), which is a fraction in terms of a, b, and c.

    I say R = (bc + ac + ab)/(abc) is the answer.

    You say?
