Recently a student needed assistance on simplifying radical expression for his algebra class. He sent me several examples that he needed help understanding. After explaining how to simplify this wide variety of examples, I was motivated to write a formal segment on this topic to include here for fellow teachers and students to use. Feel free to send me other examples you’d think would make a nice addition to this piece. I look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions, and as always I look forward to hearing from my editors for any needed corrections.
