A quotient with a square root in the denominator is not simplified
A quotient with a square root in the denominator is not simplified. To simplify these expressions, multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. This is called rationalizing the denominator.

Example 4A: Rationalizing the Denominator
Simplify the quotient. Multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. Product Property of Square Roots. Simplify the denominator.

Example 4B: Rationalizing the Denominator
Simplify the quotient. Multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. Simplify the square root in denominator.

Check It Out! Example 4a Simplify the quotient. Multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. Simplify the square root in denominator.

Check It Out! Example 4b Simplify the quotient. Multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. Simplify the square root in denominator.

Check It Out! Example 4c Simplify the quotient. Multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. Simplify the square root in denominator. Factor and simplify the square root in the numerator.
