Warm up Simplify. 1. 2. 3.

EOCT Practice The area of a rectangle is b2 – 5b – 24 square centimeters. Its width is b + 3 centimeters. Which expression represents the length in centimeters, of the rectangle? b - 8 b + 8 b - 15 b + 15 a

Example 1 Multiply then simplify if possible.

Example 2 Distribute then simplify if possible.

Dividing Radicals Check to see if you can simplify the radicands and split them up. Simplify PERFECT SQUARES. If there’s a radical in the denominator, rationalize it. Check again to see if any numbers outside the radical can simplify.

Rationalizing the Denominator
Multiply top and bottom by the bottom radical Simplify the top The bottom will become the radicand
