sqrt r - sqrt s/ sqrt r + sqrt s =r sqrt r- sqrt rs +sqrt s/ r

can someone check this for me please.

Use parentheses to clarify whether you mean
(sqrt r - sqrt s)/ (sqrt r + sqrt s)
or
sqrt r - (sqrt s/ sqrt r) + sqrt s

• Algebra 1 -

(sqrt r- sqrt s)/ sqrt r+ sqrt s)= r sqrt r - sqrt rs + sqrt s/ r

Is the answer I got correct.

• Algebra 1 -

Multiply numerator and denominator by (sqrt r - sqrt s) to get rid of some sqrt signs. The new denominator becomes r-s.

(sqrt r- sqrt s)/(sqrt r+ sqrt s)=
[r - 2 sqrt(rs)+ s]/(r -s)

Thanks, This is my first time working on Algebra.

sqrt 6 * sqrt 8 also sqrt 7 * sqrt 5 6.92820323 and 5.916079783 So you can see the steps — sqrt 6 * sqrt 8 = sqrt 48 sqrt 7 * sqrt 5 = sqrt 35 I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
