**Rationalizing Denominators**

19
Rationalizing a denominator involves rewriting a radical expression as an equivalent expression in which the denominator no longer contains any radicals. If the denominator contains the square root of a natural number that is not a perfect square, multiply the numerator and the denominator by the smallest number that produces the square root of a perfect square in the denominator.
