    That 2 has been cancelled by 1/2 from the exponent. Do you have some answer you have to simplify for?

    the other options are a) 3x-3/ sqrt2x-3 b.) x/sqrt 2x-3 c.) 1/sqrt 2x-3 d.)-x+3/ sqrt 2x-3 e.)5x-6/2 sqrt 2x-3

    Simply add the terms, you will get 3x-3/(2x-3)^(1/2)...Know how?

    no the final step im on is (2x-3)^1/2 +(2x)(1/2)(2x-3)^-1/2

    Ok, look, we have, (2x-3)^(1/2) +x(2x-3)^(-1/2) => [(2x-3)^(1/2) * (2x-3)^(1/2) + x ]/(2x-3)^(-1/2) =>(2x-3+x)/(2x-3)^(-1/2) =>3x-3/(2x-3)^(1/2)

    ah i feel th feel like i have made this problem harder than it neeeds to be but, why did you multiply (2x-3)^(1/2) by (2x-3)^(1/2) in the second step?

    Its the way you add surds, multiply the denominator and join them.
