Simplifying Radicals

By Diego Aguirre

The two types of radicals

A type of radical is the squared radical. An example of a squared radical is, 25 squared rooted which is 5. The other radical is the cubed radical

How to solve a squared radical

In a squared radical you have to find two numbers of the same value. Once you find them you put them on the outside of the radical. The number that doesn't have a pair is then kept inside the radical.

Solving Cubed radicals

In a cubed radical you have to find three numbers of the same value. Once you find them you put them on the outside of the radical. The number that doesn't have a group is then kept inside the radical.
