$\cdot$ even root: ${^{even}}\sqrt{positive}=defined$ i.e. $\sqrt{64}=8$

${^{even}}\sqrt{negative}=undefined$ i.e. $\sqrt{-64}=undefined$

$\cdot$ odd root: ${^{odd}}\sqrt{positive\;or\;negative}=defined$ i.e. ${^3}\sqrt{64}=4$

i.e. ${^3}\sqrt{-64}=-4$

${^{even}}\sqrt{negative}=undefined$ i.e. $\sqrt{-64}=undefined$

$\cdot$ odd root: ${^{odd}}\sqrt{positive\;or\;negative}=defined$ i.e. ${^3}\sqrt{64}=4$

i.e. ${^3}\sqrt{-64}=-4$

**Evaluating Radicals Algebraically**

Without using a calculator, evaluate:a)$\sqrt { - 9}$b)${^3}\sqrt{{ - 27}}$c)${^6}\sqrt{{\frac{1}{{64}}}}$d)${^4}\sqrt{{ - 81}}$e)$9{^3}\sqrt{{64}}$ - 2.
**Evaluating Radicals Using a Calculator**

Use a calculator to determine:a)${\;}{^6}\sqrt{{729}}$b)${^5}\sqrt{{-1024}}$c)${^5}\sqrt{{\frac{{32}}{{243}}}}$d)${^6}\sqrt{{600}}$e)${^5}\sqrt{{0.5}}$f)$\frac{3}{4}{^4}\sqrt{{36}}$ - 3.
**Radical Rules**

Combining radicals: Do's and Don'ts - 4.Determine whether the following statements are true or false.a)$\sqrt 2 \times \sqrt 3 = \sqrt 6$b)$\frac{{\sqrt {20} }}{{\sqrt {10} }} = \sqrt 2$c)$\sqrt {15} \cdot\sqrt {30} \cdot\sqrt 2 = 900$d)${^3}\sqrt{5} \cdot {^3}\sqrt{{25}} = 5$
