Week 4 – Precalc 11

For the fourth week of Precalc 11, we continued studying about “Radical Operation and Equations” unit.

First, we learned how to Multiply & Divide Radicals.

When we are multiplying radicals (with the same index), we need to multiply under the radical first, and then multiply in front of the radical (any values multiplied times the radicals).

When we are dividing radicals (with the same index),  we need to divide under the radical first, and then divide in front of the radical (divide any values multiplied times the radicals).

And also to divide radical expressions with the same index, we use the quotient rule for radicals. If a and b represent nonnegative numbers, where ,  then we have:
