# Simplifying Radicals

Not what you're looking for?

It is important to simplify radical expressions before adding or subtracting to get terms with like radicals. Once we find terms with like radicals we can then add or subtract the expressions. Simplifying the expression and obtaining terms with like radicals makes the problem less complex when solving. We can follow the same rules of polynomials expressions when adding and subtracting radical expressions because they both require like terms. Both polynomials and radical expressions differ because radical expressions contain rational numbers as exponents and polynomials do not.

Here is my example of a radical expression, Please complete the attached problem as an attachment.
