Here is an example of how to simplify a radial (square root).  Remember to read the lesson on this topic.

Basic steps to follow:

1. First understand that square roots are 1 type of radical expression; cube roots and other roots also follow these rules
2. The key to simplifying a radical expression is to find perfect square factors; i.e. numbers like 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, etc
3. Simplify by writing the radical as the product of a perfect square factor and other numbers; take the square root of the perfect square factor to simplify the radical
