Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to multiply radicals and simplify them. You can either multiply everything inside the radical or simplify each radical and then multiply them. Simplifying each radical first may be easier as it helps reduce the larger number you end up with. You can even rewrite a larger number as a product of square numbers to make it simpler. With practice, you will be able to simplify radicals and multiply them with ease.

Lesson Description:

Multiplying radicals and then simplifying

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
