1 Rationalizing the Denominator Radical expressions, at times, are easier to work with if the denominator does not contain a radical. The process to clear the denominator of all radical is referred to as rationalizing the denominator 7.5 – Rationalizing the Denominator of Radicals Expressions

8 Radical Equations: The Squaring Property of Equality: Examples: 7.6 – Radical Equations and Problem Solving

9 Suggested Guidelines: 1) Isolate the radical to one side of the equation. 2) Square both sides of the equation. 3) Simplify both sides of the equation. 4) Solve for the variable. 5) Check all solutions in the original equation. 7.6 – Radical Equations and Problem Solving
