 The following rules can be used when multiplying or dividing surds.
 Rationalising the denominator of a surd means changing the denominator so that is a rational number. To rationalize the denominator of a surd such as we use the result that so if we multiply the denominator by it will be rational. if we multiply the demoniator by we must also multiply the numerators by so that
 Fractional indices may be used to express roots.
 Make sure you can use your calculator to find powers and roots. The or button allows you to find roots.
For example:
INDICES
 When the powers are fraction , then we can compare the indices in following manner.
for example :find which is greather or
step1 : find the L.C.M of the denominator of the fraction i.e 4,5 = 20
step2 : find powers with the L.C.M OR = AND
step3 : compare the result obtained in setp2 : i.e as 32 < 81 we can say <
