We'll use properties of radicals in this lesson. One of the properties is the quotient property, which tells us that if we have the fifth root of x over y, we can split it up into the fifth root of x over the fifth root of y. The properties of radicals can help solve problems that involve simplifying radical expressions. In this lecture, you'll learn what a simplified radical expression is, and how to simplify it. The common problems that youll learn involve rationalizing denominators and conjugate radical expressions. Besides that, youll learn how to add, subtract, and multiply radicals.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
