**Example**

Simplify:

**Solution**

We cannot simplify the fraction because the numerator and denominator have no common factors except 1 and -1. Instead we will write the radical as a quotient of two radicals. Then we will try to simplify each radical so that we can write the expression without a radical in the denominator. | |

Use the Division Property of Radicals to write the radical as a quotient of two radicals. | |

For each radical, factor the radicand. Use perfect fourth power factors when possible. | |

Write as a product of radicals. Place each perfect fourth power under its own radical symbol. | |

Simplify the fourth root of each perfect fourth power. | |

Multiply the factors outside the radical. | |

So, |
