11 Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide R-11 R.5 Review of Radicals Rules for Radicals For all real numbers a and b, and positive integers m and n for which the indicated roots are real numbers,

12 Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide R-12 R.5 Using the Rules for Radicals to Simplify Radical Expressions Example Simplify each expression. (a) (b)(c) Solution (a) (b) (c)

13 Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide R-13 R.5 Simplifying Radicals Simplified Radicals An expression with radicals is simplified when the following conditions are satisfied. 1. The radicand has no factor raised to a power greater than or equal to the index. 2. The radicand has no fractions. 3. No denominator contains a radical. 4. Exponents in the radicand and the index of the radical have no common factor. 5. All indicated operations have been performed (if possible).

20 Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide R-20 R.5 Rationalizing Denominators The process of simplifying a radical expression so that no denominator contains a radical is called rationalizing the denominator. Rationalizing the denominator is accomplished by multiplying by a suitable form of 1.
