  • Simplifying Radical Expressions

  • Simplifying Radical ExpressionsA radical has been simplified when its radicand contains no perfect square factors.Test to see if it can be divided by 4, then 9, then 25, then 49, etc.Sometimes factoring the radicand using the tree is helpful.

  • StepsTry to divide the radicand into a perfect square for numbersIf there is an exponent make it even by using rules of exponentsSeparate the factors to its own square rootSimplify
