I can't remember the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions with roots. For example, f(x) the square root of x+1 added to f (g) 2/the square root of x+1. The answer was x+3 over the square root of x+1, but I don't know how they obtained this, the rules etc. Thank you. P.S. I would like to know what topic to study concerning the rules of adding, multiplying, dividing root fractions. Thank you. Last edited by skipjack; August 25th, 2019 at 04:39 AM.
