In this video, we learn how to rationalize the denominator. This says that if there is a square root or any type of root, you need to get rid of them. Look at the examples given in the video to get an idea of what types of roots you will be removing and how to do it. To get rid of a square root, all you really have to do is to multiply the top and bottom by that same square root. Do this on all of your problems with a square root and they will be gone in just a matter of minutes!
