Simplifying Radicals
Topic Radical Expressions Essential Question
How are radical expressions represented and how
can you
solve them?

What numbers are perfect squares?
  • 1 1 1
  • 2 2 4
  • 3 3 9
  • 4 4 16
  • 5 5 25
  • 6 6 36
  • 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144, ...

Combining Radicals

To combine radicals combine the coefficients of
like radicals
Hint In order to combine radicals they must be
like terms
10
Simplify each expression
11
Simplify each expression Simplify each radical
first and then combine.

Multiplying Radicals

To multiply radicals multiply the coefficients
and then multiply the radicands and then simplify
the remaining radicals.
Hint to multiply radicals they DO NOT need to be
like terms

Dividing Radicals
To divide radicals divide the coefficients,
divide the radicands if possible, and rationalize
the denominator so that no radical remains in the
denominator
19
That was easy!
20
Simplify
Uh oh There is a radical in the denominator!
Whew! It simplified!
21
Simplify
Uh oh Another radical in the denominator!
 
Whew! It simplified again! I hope they all are
like this!
22
This cannot be divided which leaves the radical
in the denominator. We do not leave radicals in
the denominator. So we need to rationalize by
multiplying the fraction by something so we can
eliminate the radical in the denominator.
42 cannot be simplified, so we are finished.
23
Simplify
Uh oh There is a fraction in the radical!
Since the fraction doesnt reduce, split the
radical up.
 
How do I get rid of the radical in the
denominator?
Multiply by the fancy one to make the
denominator a perfect square!
24
This can be divided which leaves the radical in
the denominator. We do not leave radicals in the
denominator. So we need to rationalize by
multiplying the fraction by something so we can
eliminate the radical in the denominator.

Reduce the fraction.

Challenge
Since there are no like terms, you can not
combine.

How do you know when a radical problem is done?
  1. No radicals can be simplified.Example
  2. There are no fractions in the radical.Example
  3. There are no radicals in the denominator.Example
