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

To multiply 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:

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