There are three steps on how to evaluate a radical. Some of the step-by-step instructions are multiply two radicals with the same index number by simply multiplying the numbers beneath the radicals, divide a radical by another radical with the same index number by simply dividing the numbers inside, and simplify large radicals using the product and quotient rules of radicals.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

When you multiply a radical number with another radical number do the radical signs cancel each other out?

Not necessarily. If it is the same radical number, then the signs cancel out. Radical 5 times radical 5 equals 5. But if they are different, then you multiply the numbers and leave them under the radical sign. Example: radical 5 * radical 6 = radical 30
