Multiplying & Dividing Radicals

Objective: To simplifying products and quotients of radicals.

Multiplying Radicals

*

To multiply radicals: multiply the coefficients and then multiply the radicands and then simplify the remaining radicals.

Multiply and then simplify

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

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.
