1). Rationalize the denominator and simplify

Ö(15/55) = Ö(3/11) = Ö3 /Ö11 = [Ö3 * Ö11]/(11) = Ö33 /11

2). Solve for , where t is a real number. If there is more than one solution, separate them with commas.

Ö(t - 22) = 5 t - 22 = 5^2 = 25 t = 25 + 22 = 47

3). Solve for where x is a real number. If there is more than one solution, separate them with commas.

Squaring on both sides, we get 6x + 7 = 9x - 10

3x = 17 x = 17/3

4) What is the value of ?

Given expression = 125^(1/3) = (5^3)^(1/3) = 5

5). Write expression in simplified radical form

3Ö54 = 3Ö(27 * 2) = 3Ö27 * 3Ö2 = 33Ö2

6).Find the roots of the quadratic equation. If there is more than one root, separate them with commas.

y^2 - 6y + y - 6 = 0

y(y - 6) + 1(y - 6) = 0

(y + 1)(y - 6) = 0

y = {-1, 6}

7). Solve the equation for If there is more than one solution, separate them ...
