## DarthNyeel 3 years ago what are the two steps for simplifying radicals? Can either step be deleted? or added?

Who says there are 2 steps?

2. DarthNyeel

I actually don't need the steps. Just need to know if you can add or delete any.

3. estudier

I don't know how to answer your question. I am reasonably sure the answer is ......depends (on the exact problem, which might have 1,2, 3, 4 or more steps depending on what you think a step is).

Let me provide the questions I am having to answer for this class. What are the two steps for simplifying radicals? Provide examples for each step. Can either step be deleted? If you could add a step that might make it easier or easier to understand, what step would you add?

Well, your teacher has been teaching you something and has shown you some examples which require 2 "steps" Do you mean a simple problem like --- simplify sqrt(40) ---- for example?

6. DarthNyeel

I think I just figured it out. Thank you very much for your time.

You are welcome.
