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

can someone check this for me please.

  • Algebra 1 -

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

    Your answer is not correct. If you show your work, perhaps we can show you where a mistake was made.

    Thanks, This is my first time working on Algebra.
