There are all kinds of theories—many supported by science—about what causes Alzheimer's disease. Tangles of protein called ß-amyloid (pronounced beta amyloid) plaques are prominently on the list of possible causes or, at least, contributors. An emerging theory of the disease suggests that those plaques aren't the problem, but are actually our brains' defenders. They show up to help fight an infection, and decades later, they become the problem.

### 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: 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...

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: 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.

### 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.

### 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.

This video in the Education category will show you how to simplify radicals before adding or subtracting. By doing this you will find all like radicals which will then ensure that you have all radicals in the simplest form. Let’s say you want to subtract square root of 45 from 3 square roots of 20. Now square root of 45 can be written as square root of 9 x square root of 5. Because, 9 and 5 are factors of 45. Similarly, 3 square roots of 20 can be simplified to 3 x square root of 4 x square r...

### 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...

From here, you can do basic math to find what's lef...

### How To: Graph half an ellipse

If you are given an equation of ellipse in the form of a function whose value is a square root, you may need to simplify it to make it look like the equation of an ellipse. Now equate the function to a variable y and perform squaring on both sides to remove the radical. Now simplify the equation and get it in the form of (x*x)/(a*a) + (y*y)/(b*b) = 1 which is the general form of an ellipse. Now you will have the x and y intercepts which are a and b respectively. Using this values graph the eq...
