Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is tricky, you realize that if you multiply by the complement, you get 98 which equals 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see, the thing is (3+2sqrt(2))(32sqrt(2))=(3)^2(2sqrt(2))^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the COMPLEMENT of (3+2sqrt(2)) is (32sqrt(2)) b/c that is like squaring both elements.
