    To learn how these work, try this lesson on radicals. (The worked examples show all the steps, as you've requested.)

    Once you've learned the necessary background material, please attempt the exercises. If you get stuck, you will then be able to reply with a clear listing of your steps and reasoning so far.

    For instance:

    Thank you!
