An expression that contains a radical sign
is a radical expression. There are many
different types of radical expressions, but in this
course, you will only study radical expressions
that contain square roots.
Examples of radical expressions:
The expression under a radical sign is the
radicand. A radicand may contain numbers,
variables, or both. It may contain one term or
