MAT 222 Week 3 DQ 1 Simplifying Radicals

Simplifying Radicals Radicals. In this discussion, you will simplify and compare equivalent expressions written both in radical form and with rational (fractional) exponents. Read the following instructions in order and view the example to complete this discussion: a. Find the rational exponent problems assigned to you in the table below.

If the last letter of your first name is On pages 576 – 577, do the following problems A or L 42 and 101 B or K 96 and 60 C or J 46 and 104 D or I 94 and 62

E or H 52 and 102 F or G 90 and 64 M or Z 38 and 72 N or Y 78 and 70 O or X 44 and 74 P or W 80 and 68 Q or V 50 and 76 R or U 84 and 66 S or T 54 and 100 b. Simplify each expression using the rules of exponents and examine the steps you are taking. c. Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to Do not write definitions for the words; use them emphasize the words in your writing (Do appropriately in sentences describing the thought behind your math work work.): ยง Principal root ยง Product rule

§ Quotient rule § Reciprocal § nth root Refer to Inserting Math Symbols for guidance with formatting. Be aware that with regards to the square root symbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a radical and not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much of an expression is included in the radical itself unless you use parenthesis. For example, if we have √12 + 9 it is not enough for us to know if the 9 is under the radical with the 12 or not. Thus we must specify whether we mean it to say √(12) + 9 or √(12 + 9). As there is a big difference between the two, this distinction is important in your notation. Another solution is to type the letters “sqrt” in place of the radical and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in the radical as described in the second method above. The example above would appear as either “sqrt(12) + 9” or “sqrt(12 + 9)” depending on what we needed it to say.
