**Simplify Radical Expressions**

What steps would you take in simplifying the following: √(3+92)

2
EQs… How do we simplify algebraic and numeric expressions involving square root? How do we perform operations with square roots?

3
Vocabulary Simplest Form – A radical expression is in simplest form if no perfect square factors other than 1 are in the radicand, no fractions are in the radicand, and no radicals appear in the denominator of the fraction. Rationalizing the Denominator – The process of eliminating a radical from an expression’s denominator.

4
**Vocabulary Radical Conjugates –**

Product Property of Radicals – States that the square root of a product equals the product of the square roots of the factors. Quotient Property of Radicals – States that the square roots of a quotient equals the quotient of the square roots of the numerator and denominator.

5
**Example 1 Use the product property of radicals**

Simplify the expression.

6
Multiplying Radicals * To multiply radicals: multiply the coefficients and then multiply the radicands and then simplify the remaining radicals.

7
**Multiply and then simplify**
