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

To rationalize the numerator, multiply numerator and denominator by a radical that will get rid of the radical in the numerator. A Conjugate is formed when the sign in between the two terms of a binomial is changed to the opposite sign.

**What are the steps for simplifying radicals?**

Step 1: Determine the prime factors of the number under the root. Step 2: Write the prime factors in groups. Step 3: Simplify any multiplication and exponents. Step 4: Simplify the radical until no further simplification can be done.

**How to rationalize the numerator in calculus?**

To rationalize the numerator, you multiply the both numerator and the denominator by the conju-gate of the numerator. Example: Find the conjugate of: 1. p a+ p b 2. 5 + p y 3. p x 2 Warm-up Problem 1: Rationalize the numerator for p x 2 x 4 Tip: When simplifying by rationalizing the numerator, it is best to leave the denominator in

### How to rationalize a denominator?

4 2+2 {\\displaystyle {\\frac {4} {2+{\\sqrt {2}}}}}

**What does it mean to rationalize numerator?**

We rationalize numerator (vs. denominator) since it removes an apparent singularity at h=0. As a→0, the latter yields the root x=−b/c of bx+c (=ax2+bx+c when a=0). As a→0, the latter yields the root x=−b/c of bx+c (=ax2+bx+c when a=0).

**How to rationalize denominators?**

To rationalize the denominator,we have to multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the conjugate of the denominator.
