# Finding Excluded Values

This is an MCQ-based quiz for GRE on How To Find Excluded Values.

This includes Excluded values which are values that will make the denominator of a fraction equal to 0. You can't divide by 0, so it's very important to find these excluded values when you're solving a rational expression.
