Chapter 7 Section 1 Roots and Radical Expressions

 5 2 = 255 is a square root of 25  Since 5 2 = 255 is a square root of 25  5 3 = 1255 is a cube root of 125  Since 5 3 = 1255 is a cube root of 125  5 4 = 6255 is a fourth root of 625  Since 5 4 = 6255 is a fourth root of 625  5 5 = 31255 is a fifth root of 3125  Since 5 5 = 31255 is a fifth root of 3125

**Roots and Exponents are inverse operations**  For any real numbers a and b, and any positive integer n, if a n = b then a is the n th root of b.  Note: We are now working in REAL numbers only. (This means we will not be using i for any of our answers)

If the root is even then there can be two answers is the principal root which indicates a positive answer is the other root which indicates a negative answer index radicand radical sign  If the root is odd then there can be only one answer (the same sign as the radicand)
