    i need help man, any one know how to add square roots such as 3 square root 5 + 3 square root 7,

    this doesn't make sense because whenever i plug in the 9 i get 3 and the answer is 6, it doesn't make sense.

    What does the first post say, it's not clear?

    Actually NONE of these make sense!
    If you aren't going to use Latex at least use parentheses to clarify- and "t^2" is clearer than "square t".
    I think you mean (9- 3t)/(3-3t^2)+ t^2/(t^2+3). Can you factor 3-3t^2? Get the lowest common denominator and add.

    [itex]3\sqrt{5}+ 3\sqrt{7}[/itex]? About the only thing you can do is factor out the three: [itex]3(\sqrt{5}+ \sqrt{7})[/itex]. There is no way to "add square roots" of different numbers.

    Plug 9 into what? What are you talking about?

    i figured this one out already, i didn't mean 3 squared i meant the square root of 3
