I would like help understanding why it is important to simplify radicals expressions before adding and subtracting? How is adding radicals expressions similar to adding polynomials expressions? How is it different? also, an example of an radical expression would be great? I'm having hard time finding comprehensive information.

Why is it important to simplify radical expressions before adding or subtracting? How is adding radical expressions similar to adding polynomial expressions? How is it different? Provide a radical expression for your classmates to simplify.
Consider participating in the discussion by simplifying your classmates' expressions.

1) Use rational exponents to simplify.
2) Simplify by factoring. Assume that all expressions under radicals representing nonnegative numbers.
sqrt(50a^2*b)
3) Find a polynomial for the perimeter and for the area. The top of the rectangle is n+4, the right side is n. The perimeter is ? (Simplify your
