Indices and surds (Year 10)
Year 10
This is the third video in this series looking at Surds; a part of the Year 10 Advanced course. Having already looked at what surds are and how we can add and subtract them, I now look at how to multiply and divide them. I take some time to look at the distributive law and how to use it to multiplying surds. There are lots of worked examples all backed by theory which is well explained and easy to understand.
