??? You're not multiplying them here.
Then how do I add them?

Well certainly not by multiplying them, that's a whole other operation.

It's just that, though you can factor out the a which is helpful to simplify the overall fraction further.

3ab?

4. No.

No.

So do I do the rest just like the same way?

Yes. That would be the final simplified answer.

Okay can you do a quick example on root 500 and simplifying it. On paper please x

I can't really factories this and the numerators have no like terms

Lol sure, root 500 it is then.

Also that fraction with a, b, c and d cannot be factorised any further. Just make it a single fraction and you're done

What's confusing about it? I'm splitting 500 into 2 and 250 as they make up the 500. Obviously I cannot decompose the 2 any further so I split the 250 into 2 and 125, and finally I split 125 into 5 and 25. There are all surds multiplied together so I just simplify the one's I can.

Doesn't 25 decompose into 5 and 5

Yeah. But for one, I know that 25 is a square number so when it is square rooted, I would just get 5.

Otherwise, I could've written it as root 5 times root 5 but I would've gotten a 5 out of these two multiplied. I just skipped this step.

So using these circled numbers how would I find simplified of 500?

It would be then just simplify whatever you can.

Correct method except you must've gotten carried away because at the very bottom, 5 and 5 do not make up 10 with multiplication.
