A number under a radical sign is known as a radicand.

False

The radicand which is the name for the number that you are trying to solve the square root of.

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
