\[\sqrt{50} = \sqrt{25 x 2}\]

now by the property of radicals - we know that the square root of two number multipled: e.g. \[\sqrt{a*b} = \sqrt{a} * \sqrt{?}\]
sandra
  • sandra
ugh, with that ? being b
sandra
  • sandra
so \[\sqrt{50} = \sqrt{25 * 2} = \sqrt{25} * \sqrt{2} = 5 * \sqrt{?}\]
sandra
  • sandra
meh - with that last "?" above being "2"
sandra
  • sandra
\[5*\sqrt{2}\]

see dont listen to sandra and galf of the work is done follow this suppose that you have to find sqrt of 50 look for nearest perfect sqrt so aqrt of following numbers are 1 =1 4=2 9=3 25=5 36=6 49=7 64=8 so the sqrt of five lies between 7 and 8 that is it has to be something like 7point something got it
