Math tutoring on Dividing Radicals

To simplify a quotient involving radicals, we do something called rationalizing the denominator. This actually will not feel a lot like division, but it is how we handle division with radicals. For a single-term denominator, in math tutoring, we will multiply the numerator by a single radical that makes the denominator a perfect nth root. If the denominator involves a sum or difference, then we will multiply the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator.  When dividing radical expressions, the rules governing quotients are similar:

If a radical appear in the denominator of a fraction, to simplify the expression we have to remove the radicals by rationalizing.
