This lesson is essential in solving Math problems in grades 9 - 12.
The students will learn how to break down numbers by identifying their products. The products of these numbers must include the highest perfect square of the number.
The steps involved are as follows:
Step 1: Find the largest perfect square that divides the number in the radical.
Step 2: Break the radical expression such that the radical of a quotient is the product of the radicals.
Step 3: Simplify the product by calculating the square root of the perfect square.
