To simplify two radicals with different roots, we first rewrite the roots as rational exponents. Before the terms can be multiplied together, we change the exponents so they have a common denominator. By doing this, the bases now have the same roots and their terms can be multiplied together. Next, we write the problem using root symbols and then simplify.
