-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.)

Can the radicand be negative when the index is even?

Given that the radicand is part of the question, not part of the answer, you can make the radicand whatever you want it to be. However, in any given root sum, for example, sqrt(-4), if the index is even, such as it is in a square root sum, the answer will always be positive.
