## What are the rules of Surds?

The rules of surds are:

- Rule 1: = √(r*s) = √r*√s.
- Rule 2: √(r/s) = √r/√s.
- Rule 3: r/√s = (r/√s) X (√s/√s)
- Rule 4: p√r ± q√r.
- Rule 5: r / (p+q√n)
- Rule 6: r / (p-q√n)

### How do you add Surds?

When you add and subtract surds, the numbers inside the square root must be the same. You add/ subtract the number outside the square root. e.g. 2√5 + 7√5 = 9√5, however 2√5 + 7√3 cannot be added.

**Can Surds have decimals?**

A surd is an expression that includes a square root, cube root or other root symbol. Surds are used to write irrational numbers precisely – because the decimals of irrational numbers do not terminate or recur, they cannot be written exactly in decimal form.

### How do you multiply out brackets including surds?

Multiplying out brackets including surds – Higher Expressions with brackets that include surds can be multiplied out or expanded. Multiply out ((2 + sqrt {5}) (3 + sqrt {2})) Each term in the first bracket has to be multiplied by each term in the second bracket.

**What are the different types of surds?**

1 Simple Surds – A surd that has only one term is called a simple surd. 2 Pure Surds – Surds which are completely irrational. 3 Similar Surds – The surds having the same common surds factor 4 Mixed Surds – Surds that are not completely irrational and can be expressed as a product of a rational number and an irrational number

**What are surds in math?**

Surds are numbers left in square root form that are used when detailed accuracy is required in a calculation. They are numbers which, when written in decimal form, would go on forever. Expressions with brackets that include surds can be multiplied out or expanded.

## What is the difference between surds and indices?

Surds are the root values that cannot be written as whole numbers. Indices are the power or exponent of a value. For example, for 32, 2 is the index and 3 is the base. Suppose, we have a value √33.
