(a + b)(c + d) becomes a(c + d) + b(c + d) which simplifies to ac + ad + bc + bd Multiplying a radical binomial to a radical binomial: use the Distributive Property. example: Simplify (7 o Distribute 3 + 2 5 )( 3 − 4 5 ) (7 3 ) ( 3 ) − ( 7 3 ) ( 4 5 ) + (2 5 ) ( 3 ) − (2 5 ) ( 4 5 ) o Multiply exercise: Simplify exercise: Simplify (28 15 ) + ( 2 15 ) − 40 −19 − 26 15 Answer: exercise: Simplify − 21 ( ( ( 11 − 7 ) ( 5 11 + 9 ) 5 − 6) [Answer: −26 2 10 + 3 ) ( 10 11 − 8 ] [Answer: 11 − 2 3) 30 ] [Answer: 7] PRE-CALCULUS 11 Unit 4 – Day 3: DIVIDING RADICAL EXPRESSIONS n SIMPLIFYING RADICALS ab = (n a ) (n b ) a = b n n n a b The three conditions for simplest radical form are: the radicand cannot have a factor that is perfect square larger than 1. the radicand cannot be a fraction or d...
