**Word Problem**: What length must a pendulum be in order for one complete cycle to take 1.2 seconds?

(Use the above formula where *T* represents the period in seconds and *L* represents the pendulum length in feet.)

As long as the indices are the same, we can multiply the radicands together using the following property.

Take care to be sure that the indices are the same before multiplying. We will assume that all variables are positive.

Divide radicals using the following property.

This technique does not work when dividing by a binomial containing a radical. A new technique is introduced to deal with this situation.
