Write Simplifying a Rational Expression x 2 ϩ 4x Ϫ 12 in simplest form. 3x Ϫ 6 Solution x2 ϩ 4x Ϫ 12 ͑x ϩ 6͒͑x Ϫ 2͒ ϭ 3x Ϫ 6 3͑x Ϫ 2͒ ϭ xϩ6 , 3 x Factor completely. 2 Divide out common factors. Note that the original expression is undefined when x ϭ 2 (because division by zero is undefined). To make sure that the simplified expression is equivalent to the original expression, you must restrict the domain of the simplified expression by excluding the value x ϭ 2. Now try Exercise 33. Sometimes it may be necessary to change the sign of a factor by factoring out ͑Ϫ1͒ to simplify a rational expression, as shown in Example 3.

Some numbers have more than one nth root. For example, both 5 and Ϫ5 are square roots of 25. The principal square root of 25, written as Ί25, is the positive root, 5. The principal nth root of a number is defined as follows. Principal nth Root of a Number Let a be a real number that has at least one nth root. The principal nth root of a is the nth root that has the same sign as a. It is denoted by a radical symbol n a. Ί Principal nth root The positive integer n is the index of the radical, and the number a is the radicand.
