Simplifying, Adding, Subtracting, and Multiplying Radical Expressions

What are radicals? An expression that has a square root, cube root, etc. The symbol is √.
Are powers and radicals similar? Yes, you can undo a power with a radical. Just think 2 to the second power is 4. However, the square root of 4 is 2.
Why is it important to simplify radicals? When radicals are simplified it makes it easier to solve and understand complex problems. Just think would it be easier to understand the square root of 3675 or 35 times the square root of 3?
How do you find the square root of big numbers? Break them down! Find the prime factorization.
How do you simplify the radical 3675? Find the prime factorization.You should get 7x7x5x5x3. Since 7 and 5 are both to the second power the will go outside of the radical (undone) while the 3 will remain under the radical. Multiply the 7 and 5 and the answer should be 35 times the root of 3
