Product Property of Radicals For any numbers a and b where and,
Product Property of Radicals Examples
Quotient Property of Radicals For any numbers a and b where and,
Rationalizing the denominator Rationalizing the denominator means to remove any radicals from the denominator. Ex: Simplify
Simplest Radical Form No perfect nth power factors other than 1. No fractions in the radicand. No radicals in the denominator.
Adding radicals We can only combine terms with radicals if we have like radicals Reverse of the Distributive Property
Multiplying radicals - Distributive Property
Multiplying radicals - FOIL F O I L
Examples: F O I L
F O I L
Conjugates Binomials of the form where a, b, c, d are rational numbers.
The product of conjugates is a rational number. Therefore, we can rationalize denominator of a fraction by multiplying by its conjugate.
