How do you go about simplifying problems like:
1. x(x1)^1/2 + 2(x1)^1/2
There are a few problems like this. It's the start of school, and I've completely forgotten. ANY help would be fantastic.
Also, the same things for problems like:
2. (((1/yk)(1/y))/k)
3. (x^3/2 + (2/sqrt.of3)^2
Thank you!

common denominator: (x1)^1/2... so multiply second term by sqrt(x1)/sqrt(x1). You get [x+2(x1)]/sqrt(x1). Simplify numerator. (3x2)/sqrt(x1) = (3x2)sqrt(x1)/(x1). Is that the sort of answer you need?

it is just simply binomial expansion of (x+a)^n,put n=1\2 and a=1
