# How to Multiply Radical Expressions? (+FREE Worksheet!) A radical expression is an expression containing a square root and to multiply these expressions, you have to go through step by step, which in this blog post you will learn how to do with examples.

## A step-by-step guide to Multiplying Radical Expressions

• Multiply the numbers and expressions outside of the radicals.
• Multiply the numbers and expressions inside the radicals.
• Simplify if needed.

## Examples

### Multiplying Radical Expressions – Example 1:

Evaluate. $$2\sqrt{5}×\sqrt{3}$$

Solution:

Multiply the numbers outside of the radicals and the radical parts. Then, simplify:

$$2\sqrt{5}×\sqrt{3}=(2×1)×(\sqrt{5}×\sqrt{3})=(2)(\sqrt {15)}=2\sqrt{15}$$

### Multiplying Radical Expressions – Example 2:

Simplify. $$3x\sqrt{3}×4\sqrt{x}$$

Solution:

Multiply the numbers outside of the radicals and the radical parts. Then, simplify:

$$3x\sqrt{3}×4\sqrt{x}=(3x×4)×(\sqrt{3}×\sqrt{x})=(12x)(\sqrt{3x})=12x\sqrt{3x}$$

### Multiplying Radical Expressions – Example 3:

Evaluate. $$\sqrt{36}×\sqrt{4}$$

Solution:

The first factor the numbers: $$36=6^2$$ and $$4=2^2$$
Then: $$\sqrt{36}×\sqrt{4}=\sqrt{6^2}×\sqrt{2^2}$$
Now use radical rule: $$\sqrt[n]{a^n}=a$$, Then: $$\sqrt{6^2}×\sqrt{2^2}=6×2=12$$

### Multiplying Radical Expressions – Example 4:

Evaluate. $$4\sqrt{3}×3\sqrt{2}=$$

Solution:

Multiply the numbers outside of the radicals and the radical parts. Then, simplify:

$$4\sqrt{3}×3\sqrt{2}=$$ $$(4×3) × (\sqrt{3} × \sqrt{2)}$$$$=(12) (\sqrt{6)} = 12\sqrt{6}$$
