7.1 and 7.2 Simplifying/Multiplying/Dividing Radical expressions

+Nth Roots

+

For any real number a and b, and any positive integer n, if an = b , then a is the nth root of b.

+Real Number Examples:

Find the roots:

1. Square Root of 4 Square Root of -4

2. Cube Root of 8 Cube Root of -8

3. Fourth Root of 16 Fourth Root of -16

4. Fifth Root of 32 Fifth Root of -32

+Variable Examples:

Find the Square Root of:

1. a1  2. a2

3. a3 4. a4

+

+

When a number has two real roots, the positive root is called the principal root.

We always use the principal root when simplifying.

When multiplying radicals, one must multiply the numbers OUTSIDE (O) the radicals AND then multiply the numbers INSIDE (I) the radicals.

When dividing radicals, one must divide the numbers OUTSIDE (O) the radicals AND then divide the numbers INSIDE (I) the radicals.

Remember to rationalize the denominator if needed!

To multiply, USE FOIL!

To divide, Rationalize the denominator!

(a + b)( a - b) = a2 – b2

These are called conjugates! They make radicals disappear!

A radical equation is an equation that has a variable in a radicand or has a variable with a rational exponent.

+We use inverse operations to solve equations.

Solve: X2 = 4

The inverse of squaring a function is finding the square root.

+

Solve: X3 = 64

The inverse of cubing a function is finding the cube root.

+

The inverse of raising a function to the nth power is finding the nth root.

+Solve the following. Check your solutions!

+Solve (x)1/2 = 3

Recall that ½ = , so we square both sides!

What do you know about 2 and ½?

**To solve radical equations with rational exponents, raise each side to the reciprocal

exponent!

You may also solve radical equations by graphing! Set the equation equal to zero and graph.

The solutions are the x-intercepts!

Given:

The equation is already equal to zero!

y=

Use the zero function to find the x-intercepts!
