A quotient with a square root in the denominator is not simplified. To simplify these expressions, multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. This is called rationalizing the denominator.

Rationalizing the Denominator Simplify the quotient. Multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. Product Property of Square Roots. Simplify the denominator. COPY
