You should learn to recognize these forms so that you can factor such polynomials easily.

Some numbers have more than one nth root. For example, both 5 and Ϫ5 are square roots of 25. The principal square root of 25, written as Ί25, is the positive root, 5. The principal nth root of a number is defined as follows. Principal nth Root of a Number Let a be a real number that has at least one nth root. The principal nth root of a is the nth root that has the same sign as a. It is denoted by a radical symbol n a. Ί Principal nth root The positive integer n is the index of the radical, and the number a is the radicand.
