    I'll give you an example; how can I simplify something like \displaystyle \frac{2+2a}{2}?

    Cancel the top and bottom 2 and you're left with 2a

    Oh dear, you're gonna need to practice your fractions.

    Gonna skip the encouragement:

    \displaystyle \frac{16-48\sqrt{10}}{-356}

    Divide/multiply (doesn't matter which) top and bottom by -1

    \displaystyle \frac{48\sqrt{10} - 16}{356}

    Factorise the numerator as much as you can:

    \displaystyle \frac{16(3\sqrt{10}-1)}{356}

    You can rewrite this as:

    \displaystyle \frac{16}{356}(3\sqrt{10}-1)

    See how far you can simplify the fraction. The simplest it goes is:

    \displaystyle \frac{4}{89}(3\sqrt{10}-1)

    So final answer would be that. Or you can also rewrite it as:

    \displaystyle \frac{4(3\sqrt{10}-1)}{89}

    which leads to

    \displaystyle \frac{12\sqrt{10}-4}{89}

    Add these fractions:

     \frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{2}

    \frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{3}

    \frac{5}{2}+\frac{1}{5}

    \frac{3}{4}+\frac{7}{2}

    \frac{6}{2}+\frac{2}{6}

    \frac{b}{2}+\frac{a}{a}

    \frac{a}{b}+\frac{c}{d}

    \frac{a+1}{2}+\frac{1}{2}

    \frac{a}{b+1}+\frac{1}{2}

    \frac{2a}{2b+2}+\frac{2}{8}

    How did you add the previous fractions? You add these ones just the same way.

    Good, but for Q1 you can simplify that fraction and for Q5 you added the the denominators.

    Use a Mathswatch CD , not sure if you're teachers can give you one for free (Worth a shot asking). They do step by step questions and answers and they make it seem easy.

    In the same way; make the denominators the same before adding them.

    Yep, you got the right idea. You can proceed to simplify.
