Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is one half times the square root of 8 over 50 the radical is all over 8 over 50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/2 * sqrt(8/50) or 1/(2*sqrt(8/50)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need it in radical form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/2 * sqrt(8/50) = sqrt(8)/2sqrt(50) sqrt(8*50)/(2*50)=sqrt(480)/100 Now what can we pull out of 480? 16*30 4sqrt(30)/100 sqrt(30)/25 Thats what I come up with :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0doh! 50*8= 400 not 480

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sqrt(400)/100 = 20/100 = 2/10 = .2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0NOO! that doesn't make sense. why would multiply 8 by 50?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No radicals are allowed on the bottom of a fraction so we have to multiply by sqrt(50)/sqrt(50) to put it up top. sqrt(8) * sqrt(50) = sqrt(8*50) = sqrt(400)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but wouldn't it be 400/50? =8 x 1/2? =4??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the top of the fraction becomes: 1* sqrt(8) * sqrt(50) = sqrt(400) = 20 the bottom of the fraction becomes: 2* sqrt(50) * sqrt(50) = 2*50 = 100 20/100 = 2/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as long as 8*50= 400 then I am sure :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohk because this is on my test tomorrow and i really do not want to get it wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you understand how I got the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes because you have to rationalize because no radicals can be on the bottom! yay haha thank you. but i have another question.. 6√8 x 7√2.... 6√8 simplifies to 12√2, so does the answer become 19√2 or 84√2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lets look at that this way: 6*7*sqrt(8)*sqrt(2)=42*sqrt(8*2) 42*sqrt(16)= 42*4 = 168

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0these answers have to be in radical form though. all you have to do is simplify so would it be 19√2 or 84√2, i don't think my teacher would accept that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the problem is addition than you end up with a radical. But, when you multiply radicals, the numbers underneath like radicals multiply together. If that number is a perfect product for that radical, the radical disappears. sqrt(3)*sqrt(3) = sqrt(9)=3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you square the problem statement and simplify you will get the fraction 1/25 The square root of 1/25 is 1/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nevermind i think i got it. i didn't realize that you multiply the 84 by 2

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know why you multiply 84 by 2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because both of the 2s are in radicals

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good :) and: sqrt(2) * sqrt(2) = sqrt(2*2) = sqrt(4) = 2. right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about this one? the sides of a rectangle is the square root of 14 and the square root of 20.. what is the area?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Might be a little late, but... the Area of a rectangle can be figured out by multiplying the length by the width (A=L*W). A=sqrt(20) * sqrt(14) = 2*sqrt(5)*sqrt(14) = 2*sqrt(70). What are the factors of 70: (1)(70), (2)(35), (5)(14), (7)(10). None of these are "perfect" squares so there is nothing we can take out. So, the answer is: 2*sqrt(70).
