    Expand and simplify.
    a (2 + 5 )(2 ? 5 ) b (7 2 ? 3 )(7 2 + 3 )
    Solution Explanation
    a (2 + 5 )(2 ? 5 ) = 4 ? 2 5 + 2 5 ? 5
    = -1
    Alternatively
    (2 + 5 )(2 ? 5 ) = 22 ? ( 5 )2
    = 4 ? 5
    = -1
    Expand using the distributive law and cancel the
    two middle terms.

    1
    2
    and
    3 1
    5
    ?
    if they are expressed
    using a whole number in the denominator. The process that removes a surd from the denominator is called
    ‘rationalising the denominator’ because the denominator is being converted from an irrational number to a
    rational number.
    Let’s start: What do I multiply by?
    When trying to rationalise the denominator in a surd like
    1
    2
    , you need to multiply the surd by a chosen
    number so that the denominator is converted to a whole number.
    • First decide what each of the following is equivalent to.
    i

    Welcome!…
    and thanks for
    visiting my site…

    This music is one of the many gifts I’ve received from my study and application of A Course In Miracles.

    These songs serve as a powerful reminder of our True Identity as Infinite Mind. They support the experiencing of God’s ever present Love and the healing Truth therein.

    To be aware of the Holy Spirit’s companionship and the necessity for His Guidance, is the key to Awakening to Our Divine Reality. The more mindful we are of our need for Truth, the greater our capacity to allow for the Revelation of It. As we all know, music supports this Purpose beautifully.
    I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share mine wi
