Hi guys! Math please help?
The equation is-2/x - 5/y + 5/x
(The slashes=/ are square root signs)
So do i subtract -2/x and 5/x or do i add?
I know they are like terms, but the subtraction sign and addition sign is confusing me.
And where would i put the 5/y??
THANKS GOD BLESS YOU ALL LUV YOU ALL :)

Treat square roots as you would other variables; like 5x-2x=3x
So -2√x-5√y +5√x
= 3√x - 5√y
Hoping this helps!

The answer would be 3/x - 5/y. In this problem you would so the same thing to the -2 and 5 as you would if they were by themselves. Subtract 2 from 5 and you get 3 :)
