How are radical expressions simplified?

The details depend on the specific radical expression. Normally, you'll want to: * Avoid a perfect square under a radical sign. Take it out, by separating the radical into two parts. Example: root (x squared y) = root (x squared) x root (y) = x root (y). * Avoid a radical sign in the denominator. If you multiply numerator and denominator by the same square root, you get an expression in which there are roots in the numerator, but not in the denominator.
