Hello! I would really appreciate some help, I need to simplify these; x + √x ------- (I know that this one is √x, but how does it get to that?) 1 + √x and; x ------- + √(1-x) √(1-x) and; 1 - x ------- 1 + √x Thank you!

Thank you - for not really telling me the answers but instead giving me just enough hints to work it out for myself. ;D Thanks again.
