    This lesson explains the same topics as the last few lessons have described, but this time, higher order roots are used. Instead of just square roots, we will now be working with cube roots, fourth roots, and other roots higher than 2. Similar methods are used for rationalizing the denominator and simplifying, but the techniques are a bit different. Many good example problems are done in this lesson and all steps are explained very well.
