In this video, we are going to divide radical expressions.

One simple example is:

By simplifying the numerator and the denominator, we now have

A slightly more difficult problem would be:

Just like the other problem, first find perfect square factors for each expression

Simplify each expression

And the final answer is

If the expression has a radical in the denominator and a rational number in the numerator, then it is necessary to rationalize the fraction.

For example:

Multiple the denominator to both the numerator and the denominator. Like terms cancel each other out so the final answer is:
