It's just what the title says. We use opposite operations on one side to eliminate values that are with the variable and perform the same operations to the other side of the equals sign to keep…


A brief description of the difference between rational and irrational numbers followed by examples of number in both categories.


This discusses what rationals and irratioinals are, then goes on to demonstrate how to eliminate any radical number in the denominator.


Demonstrates distribution when radicals are invovled.


This video shows how to multiplly the top and bottom of a square root of a fraction to get the result of a rational number in the denominator.


Demonstrations that emphasize the fact that a fraction bar acts like parentheses in that the each part of the fraction must be factored so that there is a product of factors on both top and bottomof…


A demonstration of squaring a binomial with radical terms and then a second example showing how conjugate binomials can be multiplied.


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


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


Some simple straightforward multiplicaions of radicals with no reduction afterward


Two examples of reducing radicals to then be able add or subtract like radicals


Two examples showing the addition or subtraction of like radicals


Two examples of how to deal with negative fractional exponents


Shows how to create squares under the square root so that both the exponent of two and the square root will elminiate each other.


This describes what to look for when simplifying radicals.


This demonstrates how some quadratic equations need to be simplified and put in standard form before the quadratic expression can be factored so the factors can be set to zero and solved.
