What is the number outside the square root symbol?

It's a little hard to be sure what you mean by this question without seeing what you are looking at. I can think of two likely possibilities: 1. A number which is the same size as the square root symbol and written at the same level but located just in front of the symbol. This would just be a multiplier. 2. A smaller, superscripted number, possibly tucked into the angle at the front of the square root symbol. In this case, it isn't really a square root symbol anymore. It's a symbol for the root indicated by the superscriped number. For instance, if the superscripted number is a three and the number inside the root symbol is 8, this would represent the cube root of 8, or 2 (2x2x2=8).

What is radicand?

-The radical is the symbol that represents a square root. -The radicand is the number underneath the radical symbol. -The coefficient is the number out in front of the radical. (We assume that the coefficient multiplies the radical, the same way it would multiply with a variable.)

What is radicals in math?

A radical (√) is a symbol used to symbolize the square root of a number. For example, √4 would be read as "the square root of four," which can be simplified to 2. In cases where the resulting number is not a whole number, e.g. √5, it is sometimes the case that the number remains in that form for the final answer, depending on the problem and solution.

How do you identify the transformations of a square root applied to a parent function?

Any number in a square root goes the opposite direction. For example f(x)=sqrt (x-2). This would translate the graph 2 units to the right. If you have sqrt x and -2 outside of the square root the graph would have a virtical shift down 2 units. If there is a number in front of the square root such as -3sqrtx there is a vertical shrink across the x-axis because the number is less than 0. Finally, if there is a number in front of the x, but under the square root such as sqrt6x, it is a horizantal stretch across the y-axis because the number is greater than 0.
