Want to simplify a radical whose radicand is not a perfect square? No sweat! Check out this tutorial and see how to write that radicand as its prime factorization. Then, rewrite any duplicate factors using exponents, break up the radical using the product property of square roots, and simplify. To see this process step-by-step, watch this tutorial!
To multiply radicals, you can use the product property of square roots to multiply the contents of each radical together. Then, it's just a matter of simplifying! In this tutorial, you'll see how to multiply two radicals together and then simplify their product. Check it out!
When you have a fraction with a radical in the denominator, you need to get that radical out of the denominator in order to simplify that fraction. That means you need to rationalize the denominator! In this tutorial, see how to rationalize the denominator in order to simplify a fraction.
Adding radicals isn't too difficult. As long as they have like radicands, you can just treat them as if they were variables and combine like ones together! This tutorial takes you through the steps of adding radicals with like radicands. Take a look!
Subtracting radicals can be easier than you may think! As long as they have like radicands, you can just treat them as if they were variables and combine like ones together! This tutorial takes you through the steps of subracting radicals with like radicands. Check it out!
Subtracting radicals isn't too hard. Just treat them as if they were variables and combine like ones together! Don't see like radicals? You may need to simplify the radicals so you can identify similar ones. This tutorial takes you through the steps of subtracting radicals that must first be simplified. Take a look!
The product property of square roots is really helpful when you're simplifying radicals. This property lets you take a square root of a product of numbers and break up the radical into the product of separate square roots. Check out this tutorial and learn about the product property of square roots!
The quotient property of square roots if very useful when you're trying to take the square root of a fraction. This property allows you to split the square root between the numerator and denominator of the fraction. This tutorial introduces you to the quotient property of square roots. Take a look!
