## How do you rationalize the numerator of a SURD?

How to rationalise surds with more complex denominators

- Change the sign in the middle of the expression in the denominator.
- Multiply both the numerator and the denominator of the original fraction by this new expression.
- Simplify the answer fully.

## What is rationalization of Surds?

In other words, the process of reducing a given surd to a rational form after multiplying it by a suitable surd is known as rationalization. When the product of two surds is a rational number, then each of the two surds is called rationalizing factor of the other.

**How do you do Rationalising?**

Rationalizing a Cube Root

- Step1. Examine the fraction – The fraction has a radical in the form of a cube root in the denominator.
- Step2. Multiply the numerator and denominator of the fraction by a factor that makes the exponent of the denominator 1.
- Step3. Simplify the expression as needed.

**What is rationalising surds in math?**

Rationalising surds is where we convert the denominator of a fraction from an irrational number to a rational number. In more complex cases, it is useful to multiply the denominator by its conjugate to cancel out the surds in the denominator. E.g. This lesson looks at rationalising surd expressions with more complicated denominators.

## How do you rationalize the numerator?

To Rationalize the Numerator, multiply by the conjugate of the numerator. To summarize this lesson, rationalizing the numerator is an operation that can be performed when there is a radical in the numerator of a fraction and there should not be.

## How many rules of surds are there?

Rules of surds Remember that there are three simple rules of surds: Rules of surds 1 \\[\\sqrt a imes \\sqrt a = a\\]

**What is the difference between rational and irrational surds?**

Surds are basically an expression involving a root, squared or cubed etc…There are some basic rules when dealing with surds Example: √36 = 6 The above roots have exact values and are called Rational Example: √2 = 1.41 These roots do NOT have exact values and are called Irrational OR SURDS.
