When learning how to add fractions with unlike denominators, you learned how to find a common denominator before adding. In this tutorial, you will learn how to factor unlike radicands before you can add two radicals together. You will apply the product and quotient properties of radicals to rewrite radical expressions in the search for like radicands. Once you find them, you will see how simple adding radical expressions can be.
In this lesson, I'll show you how to get out of a sticky situation like 2√3 + 3√27!
