How To: Solve an equation with a radical under a radical

In this video the instructor shows how to solve an equation with a radical under a radical. If you have an equation with a square root on both sides, with one of the sides having another inner square root under the original square root, it can be a little tricky to solve it.

How To: Solve radical equations easily

In this video, the instructor demonstrates how to solve radical equations and inequalities. If you have an equation that contains radicals, re-,arrange the equation so that all the radicals are on one side and the integers are on the other side. To cancel a square root from an equation, square both sides of the equation. The square of the equation cancels out the square root, thereby removing the radical. Even after squaring if you still have a radical left, treat it as a new problem and appl...

How To: Simplify radical expressions

In this video the instructor shows who to simplify radicals. If you have a term inside a square root the first thing you need to do is try to factorize it. First factorize the numerical term. Write down the numerical terms as a product of any perfect squares. Now split the original radical expression in the form of individual terms of different variables. Now you can pull out the perfect square numerical factors out of the radical. Similarly for the variable terms write the variables as power...

How To: Add and subtract radicals

Radicals are square roots which are not integers; the square roots of 2 or 3 are examples of radicals. The presenters show simple ways of how to add and subtract such radicals. They explain that by using the method of factoring, the addition or subtraction is made very easy. If the square root of 8, for instance, is in some addition sum, it can be factored into the square root of 4 times the square root 2. Since we know that the square root of 4 is 2 this can be simplified to be 2 times the s...

How To: Simplify square roots in math

In this video the instructor shows how to simplify radicals. A radical is nothing but another name for a square root. To find the square root of a simple number the first thing that you need to do is factor it. If you need to compute the square root of a number, you first need to find a number which multiplied by itself gives the original number under the root. For example, to find the square root of 9, you need to find a number which multiplied by itself gives 9. Here the answer is 3. When 3...

How To: Solve radical equations in algebra

The video demonstrates the solving of radical equations in algebra. The first thing to be done is to keep the radical number on one side and the other numbers on the other side. The radical is then changed to a rational number by squaring, cubing etc. Once the roots are removed, it becomes a simple equation which can be solved by keeping the unknown number on one side and the rest of the numbers on the other side. The value, thus arrived at, is checked by putting the value of the unknown numb...

How To: Multiply similar radicals

This video shows how to multiply similar radicals. The basics of doing this is to multiply the root of the radicals. For instance, if you have the cubed root of 14 multiplied by the cubed root of 3, you would only multiply the root numbers. Thus, your answer would be the cubed root of 42. The exercises in this video show a few basic examples, but they can help you down the road when completing more complex problems that involve multiplying similar radicals.

How To: Simplify a radical expression

Doug Simms online shows how to simplify the radical in a mathematical equation. If you need to brush up on your learning this video can help. Start by finding what is the largest square of the number in your radical. If that number can be solved then solve it, put the answer outside the box and the remainder in the radical. There are some great examples to follow including what to do if your number has a solution, or if there are two factors that your equation can create.

How To: Divide similar radicals

While dividing the radicals, the numerator and the denominator must be combined into a single term, for example if we want to divide square root of 3 by square root of seven we need to combine the numerator and denominator into a single factor that is square root of 3/7, then we can divide 3/7 which is 0.4285, and square root of 0.4285 is 0.654 which is the final answer.

How To: Do operations with radical expressions

Radical expressions are those in which the radical symbol (under root sign denoting the square root or the nth root) is present (either multiplied or added). Solving these is a bit tricky, but involves similar algebraic maneuvers in a different way.

How To: Calculate a limit at infinity with a radical

In this video, we learn how to calculate a limit at infinity with a radical. The idea is to take out the higher power of 'x' in the denominator first. If the x squared is under a radical, take that out so you're left with just 'x'. After this, divide every term by 'x'. Once you are finished with this, you can rewrite the equation. Next, you will use the rules of math to find the answer of the equation. This is hard math to do if you aren't used to it! Make sure you practice with the samples i...

How To: Antidifferentiate functions with radicals in calculus

This video demonstrates how to do anti-differentiate functions with radicals in calculus. To simply problems, try to substitute. For example, in the problem, the integral of x times the square root of x plus 2 dx. You can substitute w for everything underneath the radical: i.e. x + 2. When you simplify, it becomes: the integral of x times the square root of w dw. Now, you need to get rid of the x, which you can do with a substitution: w – 2 = x. Now, plug in the values and simplify it.

This video...

How To: Square expressions involving radicals

Here we look at squaring expressions that involve radicals because people tend to make some common mistakes while solving such expressions. Take 5 times the square root of y quantity squared, the answer here is not 5y. Here's the reason, square means to multiply something with itself so the square of 5 root y would be 5 root y into 5 root y. So 5 x 5 is 25 and under root y into under root y equals just y so the answer will be 25y.
