BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 4 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics CAVEAT Identical Indices  CAUTION  Only Radical Expressions with the SAME INDEX and SAME RADICAND may be combined  Expressions such as Those below CanNOT be simplified by Combining Terms

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 5 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Example  Simplify by Add/Sub  Simplify by Adding or Subtracting a)b)  SOLN → chk 1 st Indices & Radicands a) b)

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 6 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Example  Simplify by Add/Sub  Simplify by Adding or Subtracting a)b)  SOLN → chk 1 st Indices & Radicands a) Factor 28. Combine like radicals. Simplify Radical b)

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 7 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Example  Simplify by Add/Sub  Simplify by Adding or Subtracting a)b)  SOLN → chk 1 st Indices & Radicands a) b) Combine the like radicals by subtracting the coefficients and keeping the radical. Regroup terms.

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 9 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Example  Simplify by Add/Sub  Simplify by Adding or Subtracting (assume a, b > 0)  SOLN → Note that these are CUBE Rts

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 10 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Radical Expression Division  Just as the root of a product can be expressed as the product of two roots, the root of a quotient can be expressed as the quotient of two roots.

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 11 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Quotient Rule for Radicals  For any real numbers and with b > 0  Remember that an n th root is simplified when its radicand has no factors that are perfect n th pwrs Recall also that we assume that no radicands represent negative quantities raised to an even power

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu MTH55_Lec-43_sec_7-4_Add_Sub_Divide_Radicals.ppt 12 Bruce Mayer, PE Chabot College Mathematics Example  Simplify by Quotient  Simplify by taking roots of the numerator and denominator: a)b)  SOLN a) Taking the square roots of the numerator & denominator
