    all right. the equations is. \[d = \sqrt{2 - 5 \sqrt{2}} + (-\sqrt{3} - 7 * \sqrt{3})^2\]

  18. dpflan

    ok, so a square root is just this: you have a number, x, that you multiply by itself, x * x, to yield another value, x*x = y, so the square root of y is x.

    \[do you 16*2 then ^2 or do you ^ the 4 and the 2 separate?\]

    square root of 2 is actually a value less than two. if you have multiply \[\sqrt{2} * \sqrt{2}\] you'll get 2

    • 3 years ago
  21. dpflan
    Best Response

    so in that case you had, y = x*x, so the square root of y is x, here you could say that y =2, therefore x = \[\sqrt{2}\]

    • 3 years ago

    a sqrt is just a number that if you square that number, you get another number...so if you have \[\sqrt{2}\], if you square that you get 2. if you "^2 a sqrt" those two operations are cancelling eachother out...so you did this when you found that
