The combining of like factors from two radicals into one and then the simplification of the result.


A quick justification of dividing fractions by multiplying by the reciprocal of the second fraction in the division followed by an example that involves reducing the common factors in the numerator…


A short example of factoring each of two terms so we can see clearly what the common factors are.


A demo of this topic where I stack the l ike terms in columns as a perform the distributions connecting each term of the first polynomial to each term in the other.


Two bases with exponents divided by the same bases with different exponents are presented and simplified using the quotient rule. The negative exponent definition is also discussed and applied.


A short demo of this rule


A quick intro to how and why the product rule for exponents works.


Two examples of applying exponents to fractions in certain ways. Other examples should be investigated.


A qucikc look at a simple fourth root of a combined pair of them, numbers only.


Multiplication of two radicals by pairing all numbers after prime factorization and taking half of all even exponents with variables as a base.


Multiplying two radical expressions by showing the factorization of the numbers and using even exponents to remove variable factors.


Simple demonstration of what x ^ (1 / n) means.


Simplification of two fractions withing a larger fraction. Both fractions have only multiplied factors in both numerator and denominator.


Shows how to use the given factors of two different denominators and find the LCD then adjust the fractions so they can be added


Shows how to create the simplest expression both of the given ones divide into.


This demonstrates why symthetic division works when dividing by a simple binomial as in x + a or x  a. Then it shows how to fill in the answers for this type of question.
