Let’s Try a few

Simplifying Radicals No denominators with Radicals & All numbers and exponents in simplest form List: All perfect squares from 1- 15 All perfect cubes from 1- 6 All perfect fourths from 1- 4 All perfect fifths from 1- 4

Warm-up

Rationalizing Denominators & Numerators Ex. 1 Ex. 2

Ex. 3 (with 2 terms in the denominator) Ex. 4 (with 2 terms in the numerator)

Now You Try Some
