The tale of square roots

Steps in Simplifying Square Roots

Factor the radicand using perfect squares.

Take the square root of the perfect square and leave the other factor inside as the radicand.

If you pull out a perfect square when another number is already in front of the square root, the two numbers are multiplied

Multiplying Square Roots

Multiply the numbers outside the radical together and separately multiply the numbers inside the radical

Simplify using the prior method

Write variables in long notation

i.e:

For every two variables inside the radical, one pulls out front of the radical.
