Whenever you work with radical expressions the rule of thumb to working or solving the expression is that each radical expression needs to be brought down to its simplest expression or it must be simplified. In all areas of math where you will use radicals, if you do not simplify the expression, your answer will often be considered as being incorrect. Therefore, simplifying is a critical step that you need to become familiar with. In the 7th grade you were taught about simplifying so this quiz will be a practice of what you learned.
Simplifying really does make solving radical expressions a lot easier and as you become more familiar with the process and the steps, you will soon learn to skip steps and get to the solution quickly.
For this quiz, however, it will be wise to work the problems by addressing each step so the process becomes a habit in your thought process.
As the process of simplifying is pretty easy, one practice example should be sufficient before tackling the ten problems that are included with this quiz. So let’s look at the following example below.
