# Multiplying Radicals

Multiplying radicals is just matter of multiplying the numbers inside the radical signs, and putting the product inside a radical sign. Since the product of $8$ and $18$ is $144$, $\sqrt{8}.\sqrt{18}$ = $\sqrt{144}$, and since $12$ is the positive square root of 144, $\sqrt{144} = 12$.

To multiply radical expressions, one can use the product rule for radicals, which is given as

$\sqrt[n]{uv}$ = $\sqrt[n]{u}\sqrt[n]{v}$

In this section we will learn more about multiplying radicals.
