To simplify a radical square root expression, identify any factor that is a perfect square, and remove it from underneath the radical sign, replacing it with its square root. For example, to simplify the square root of 6... More »

Square roots, designated by the √ symbol, are operations that find a number which, when multiplied by itself, create the number under the radical symbol. Simplifying the square root of a number, or radicand, requires fac... More »

In order to simplify square roots with variables that are to be multiplied, treat the variables as factors. Once the radicands are factored completely, cancel any like terms and multiply the simplified square roots. More »

To find the greatest common factor of two or more integers, the common prime factors of each number are multiplied together. The result is the greatest common factor of those two or more integers. If there are no common ... More »

To find both the least common multiple and greatest common factor, find the prime factorizations of the numbers. Then put them into a grid and compare and contrast them. More »
