If you can convert the bit under the radical into a product of some squares you can pull out the square and you might end up with something you can combine with addition/subtraction.

a933793: please don't just give people answers. If they want the solution there's wolfram alpha. If they want to learn it'll take more explanation than what you've provided.

Kathy, can you factor out some of the product under the sqrt and make it into a product (multiplication) of some squared factors?

i have no idea polopak , i get so confused with these sqrts :/

Don't worry about the square roots for now. Can you factor 80?

well the common gcf of all 5, 80, 45 is 5

for problem 2
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Not greatest common factor, Just rewrite them as a product of their factors. \(80 = 8 *10 = (4*2) * (5*2) \) \(= (2*2*2)*(5*2) = (2*2)*(2*2) * 5\) \(= 2^2 * 2^2 * 5\)

Now try doing the same thing for 45.

And be sure to group up any squares you find

Ignore 1 and itself.

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and for 5 , it would be just 5

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
45 = 9*5, and 9 is what?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ok, so lets rewrite the problem now with the squares.. \(\sqrt{5}  7\sqrt{2^2 * 2^2 * 5} + 4\sqrt{3^2 * 5}\)
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Now any square factor we can pull out of the square root by removing the square.

\(7*\sqrt{2^2 * 2^2 * 5} = 7 * \sqrt{2^2} * \sqrt{2^2} * \sqrt{5} = ?\)

i multiply the sqrts ?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
No, take the square root of the squared term. What is \(\sqrt{2^2}\)
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
If a >= 0, then \(\sqrt{a^2} = a\)

Are you still with me?

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ok, great. So what's \(\sqrt{2^2}\)
 3 years ago

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sqrt. 4
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yes, but what's sqrt of 4? It's 2 right? You don't need to evaluate \(2^2\) because when you take the square root you just take off the square and the square root. They undo eachother. \(\sqrt{2^2} = 2. \) \(\sqrt{3^3} = 3.\) etc.
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Err \(\sqrt{3^2} = 3\)
 3 years ago

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so it would just be 2 and 3 ?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Not quite. So we have \(7*\sqrt{80} = 7*\sqrt{2^2 *2^2 * 5} = 7*\sqrt{2^2}*\sqrt{2^2} * \sqrt{5} =?\)

7 * 2 sqrt. 5 ?

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
correction : 7 * 2 * 2 * sqrt. 5 ?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Right. So now simplify that

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
becuase their are 2 [sqrt.2^2]
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
No, we got rid of the square root already on those. \((7*2*2)\sqrt{5} \) \(= (14*2 ) \sqrt{5}\) \(= 28 \sqrt{5}\)
 3 years ago

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
can we still simplfy that ?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
No, but we have \(\sqrt{5}  28\sqrt{5} + 4\sqrt{45}\) So if we can get the \(4\sqrt{45}\) to be a multiple of \(\sqrt{5}\) we can combine them all.
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So lets look at \(\sqrt{45}\). We said that that was 45 = 9*5 = \(3^2*5\), so what would \(4*\sqrt{45}\) simplify to?

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
2 sqrt. 5 ?

4 sqrt . 5 *3^2
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So what is the next step now that you have that?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Just like the last one, we pull out each squared factor.

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
4*3 sqrt.5 ?

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yes. Which is?
 3 years ago

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
12 sqrt. 5
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Right. So now we have \(1\sqrt{5}  28\sqrt{5} + 12\sqrt{5}\)
 3 years ago

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
15 sqrt. 5 ?

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and for the 1st problem , i factor out which is a ?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Do the same thing. Factor everything under the square root. Pull out any square factors by removing the square, leave the rest under the square root. Then combine.
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Go ahead and do it yourself, step by step and I'll point out when/if you get off track.

[4^3 sqrt. a] + [^3 sqrt. 64a] : what do i do with the powers before the sqrt ?
 3 years ago

kathyworld09 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
are you still here ?
 3 years ago

polpak Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I don't understand.. Do you have cube roots? \(4\sqrt[3]{a} + \sqrt[3]{64a}\) If so then instead of squares, you're looking for cubes. \(\sqrt[3]{2^3} = 2 \) is an example you will probably find useful. If you are still working on this, give it a try and write out your steps and where you're stuck and I'll check back again later.
