1.5 Multiplying and Dividing Radical Expressions (Part 2 - Rationalizing)
We do not like having radicals in the denominators of an expression. Therefore we rewrite it
without. This process is called rationalizing the denomina

1.4 Simplifying Radicals
What do you think?
Name:
2 x + 3 x = _ so, 2 5 + 3 5 = _
Therefore
Ex: 1) Simplify.
a) 6 2 4 2 + 2
b) 3 3 5 + 2 3 5 4 3 5
Sometimes you may have to simplify the radical first.
Ex: 2) Simplify.
