1
Simplify Radical Expressions What steps would you take in simplifying the following: (3+9 2 )

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 expressions 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
* To multiply radicals: multiply the coefficients and then multiply the radicands and then simplify the remaining radicals.

7
Multiply and then simplify

8
Example 2 Multiply radicals Simplify the expression.

9
Example 3 Use the quotient property of radicals Simplify the expression.

10
Guided Practice for Examples 1, 2, & 3 Simplify the expression.

11
Guided Practice for Examples 1, 2, & 3 Simplify the expression.

12
Example 4 Rationalize the denominator

13
+ To combine radicals: combine the coefficients of like radicals

14
Simplify each expression

15
Simplify each expression: Simplify each radical first and then combine.

16
Example 5 Add and Subtract Radicals

17
Guided Practice for Examples 4 & 5 Add and Subtract Radicals

18
Joke of the Day… Why was the math book crying?

19
It had too many problems!
