    Adding Radical Fractions

    Simplify

    a. (1/√3)+(2/√6) = √3+√6/3


    b. (5/√5)+(2/√3) = 3√5+2√3/3


    c. (1/√10)+(3/√5) = √10+6√5/10


    d. (2√10/√5)+(7/√5) = 10√2+7√5/5


    Can someone check my answers? I need to know this for a test. Thank you.

    Yeah they are correct --- just be careful of your notation eg in Q1 I think you really mean (√3+√6)/3 and same for the others.
