3. California Standards Extension of 2.0 Students understand and use such operations as taking the opposite, finding the reciprocal, taking a root, and raising to a fractional power. They understand and use the rules of exponents.

5. An expression that contains a radical sign is a radical expression. There are many types of radical expressions (such as square roots, cube roots, fourth roots, and so on), but in this chapter, you will study radical expressions that contain only square roots. Examples of radical expressions: The expression under a radical sign is the radicand. A radicand may contain numbers, variables, or both. It may contain one term or more than one term.

6. Remember that, indicates a nonnegative square root. When you simplify a square-root expression containing variables, you must be sure your answer is not negative. For example, you might think that but this is incorrect because you do not know if x is positive or negative. If x = 3, then In this case, If x = –3, then In this case, In both cases This is the correct simplification of

25. Quadrangle 250 250 Additional Example 5: Application A quadrangle on a college campus is a square with sides of 250 feet. If a student takes a shortcut by walking diagonally across the quadrangle, how far does he walk? Give the answer as a radical expression in simplest form. Then estimate the length to the nearest tenth of a foot. The distance from one corner of the square to the opposite one is the hypotenuse of a right triangle. Use the Pythagorean Theorem: c2 = a2 + b2.

26. Additional Example 5 Continued Solve for c. Substitute 250 for a and b. Simplify. Factor 125,000 using perfect squares.
