    What do we mean by 'rationalising a SUrd?' Rationalising a surd essentially means eliminating/ deleting a surd from the denominator i.e. making the denominator a rational number. For example: 3 Rationalise: We have to think of such a number which when multiplied by the numerator AND the denominator, makes the denominator a whole number. In our case, the denominator is V2. When V 2 is multiplied to itself, when get 2. (2)1/2 X (2)1/2 Hence, V 2 is the rationalising factor. 3 V2 3V2 2

    Therefore, steps to rationalise a surd are: 1. Find the rationalising factor. (A rationalising factor is the one which when multiplied to BOTH numerator and denominator, makes the denominator a whole number) 2. Multiply the numerator and denominator with the rationalising factor. 3. Write the resulting numerator and denominator. 4. Simplify the new fraction to its lowest form.

    DO Now: Find the rationalising factor of the following surds: ' 3V3 2V5 ' 3V6

    Let us now try a slightly different problem. 1 Rationalise: 3-V5 Steps of rationalisation remain the same here. We first need to find a rationalising factor. Take 2 mins and think of a suitable rationalising factor.
