## What are radicals and exponents?

An exponent is just a convenient way of writing repeated multiplications of the same number. Radicals involve the use of the radical sign, . Sometimes these are called surds. If you learn the rules for exponents and radicals, then your enjoyment of mathematics will surely increase!

**Is radical expression and radical form the same?**

The square root obtained using a calculator is the principal square root. The principal square root of a is written as √a. The symbol is called a radical, the term under the symbol is called the radicand, and the entire expression is called a radical expression.

**What is the difference between radical and rational exponent?**

Square roots are most often written using a radical sign, like this, √4 . But there is another way to represent them. You can use rational exponents instead of a radical. A rational exponent is an exponent that is a fraction….Learning Outcomes.

Radical Form | Exponent Form | Principal Root |
---|---|---|

√25 | 2512 | 5 |

√100 | 10012 | 10 |
