1. Rationalizing the Denominator Binomial Denominators Presented by Kathryn Maloney

2. Rationalizing the Denominator (1) Multiply both the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator. (2) Simplify the result.

3. Cool Math Term Conjugate Surd A surd is a root that can’t be simplified further.

4. Product of Two Conjugates Product of the sum and difference of two terms. FOIL!

5. Perform the indicate division. (Rationalize the denominator) What is the conjugate of the denominator?
