**Radicals are in simplest form when:**

No factor of the radicand is a perfect square other than 1. The radicand contains no fractions No radical appears in the denominator of a fraction

2
Perfect Squares 64 225 1 81 256 4 100 289 9 121 16 324 144 25 400 169 36 49 196 625

3
**Multiplication property of square roots:**

Division property of square roots:

4
Simplify = 2 = 4 = 5 This is a piece of cake! = 10 = 12

5
To Simplify Radicals you must make sure that you do not leave any perfect square factors under the radical sign. *Think of the factors of the radicand that are perfect squares. Perfect Square Factor * Other Factor = LEAVE IN RADICAL FORM =

6
**Simplify = = = = = = = = Perfect Square Factor * Other Factor**

LEAVE IN RADICAL FORM = = = =

7
**Simplify = = = = = = = = = = Perfect Square Factor * Other Factor**

LEAVE IN RADICAL FORM = = = = = =

8
If you cannot think of any factors that are perfect squares – prime factor the radicand to see if you have any repeated factors EX: 20 10 2 5

9
**You can simplify radicals that have variables TOO!**

= = = = =

12
**Radicals are in simplest form when:**

No factor of the radicand is a perfect square other than 1. The radicand contains no fractions No radical appears in the denominator of a fraction

13
**REMEMBER THE PRODUCT PROPERTY OF SQUARE ROOTS:**

Multiply Square Roots REMEMBER THE PRODUCT PROPERTY OF SQUARE ROOTS: OR

14
**4 Multiply Square Roots To multiply square roots –**

you multiply the radicands together then simplify EX: * = = 4 Simplify =

15
Try These : * * *

16
Let’s try some more:

17
**Multiply Square Roots Multiply the coefficients Multiply the radicands**

Simplify the radical.

18
**Multiply & Simplify Practice**

**Radicals are in simplest form when:**

No factor of the radicand is a perfect square other than 1. The radicand contains no fractions No radical appears in the denominator of a fraction

21
**Division property of square roots:**

22
**To simplify a radicand that contains a fraction – **

first put a separate radical in the numerator and denominator Then simplify

23
Try These : Simplify:

24
**If we have a radical left in the denominator then we must rationalize the denominator:**

Since we cannot leave a radical in the denominator we must multiply both the numerator and the denominator by this radical to rationalize = = = = *

25
**Hint – you will need to rationalize the denominator**

Simplify: Hint – you will need to rationalize the denominator A. B. 4 C. D. 16

30
**Which of the following is not a condition**

of a radical expression in simplest form? A. No radicals appear in the numerator of a fraction. B. No radicands have perfect square factors other than 1. C. No radicals appear in the denominator of a fraction. D. No radicands contain fractions.

31
**Adding and subtracting radical expressions**

You can only add or subtract radicals together if they are like radicals – the radicands MUST be the same
