In this page simplifying radicals expressions worksheet we are going to see some practice questions for practicing the concept radical expression.
A symbol used to indicate square of any number is called radical. The number which is under the root is called radicand.
√3 is called square root of 3.
Simplify √72 to the simplest form
To reduce this number to the simplest form we need to split this number as much as possible.
√72 = √(2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3)
If any two numbers which are in the root we can take one of them out of the root.
Here we have 2 and 3 twice. So we can take one from the root.
= 2 x 3 √2
= 6 √2
