Write a radical expression that has 4 terms (without variables), that are not in simplest form. Create this expression so that, once the terms are in simplest form, they can be combined to make an expression with one or two terms. Then, show all your work to simplify the expression. You can use "sqrt()" to show a square root. For example, can be written as 7sqrt(a)

    You just have to list four fractions that have a common denominator but are not in simplest form. Pick a number and multiply it by different numbers to get your different denominators. Then fill in different numerators, making sure the fractions are not in simplest form. After that you can simplify and combine.
