Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct so the sqrt of 54 breaks down to 3 sqrt 6 and you have a 2 out front so you need to multiply that 2 by the 3 that you just brought out front to get 6 sqrt 6  sqrt 6. Think of this as 6x  x which would be 5x .. but in this case 5 sqrt 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes.. and 6 sqrt 6 minus 1 sqrt 6 is 5 sqrt 6. Same things as 6x minus 1x is 5x
