Simplify Radical Expressions using Prime Factorization

In this post you will learn how to break down an expression into it's prime factorization. This will allow us to simplify the radical expression by grouping the number of factors that are multiplied by each other the same time as the value of the index. We will explore expressions that are comprised of number, variables, and both. We will simplify radical expressions that we can take the complete root of as well as ones that we can only ...
