    You will have to try and factor the things inside of the sqrt...

    you can't subtract numbers inside radicals like that. it worked in this example only because of coincidence you have to first simplify the radicals to simpliest so 2 sqrt (25 * 2) - 3 sqrt (4 *2) 2*5 sqrt 2 - 3 * 2 sqrt 2 10 sqrt 2 - 6 sqrt 2 4 sqrt 2

    yes but as you can see they cant be factored evenly. I was told that there is a diff way when they can t be factored evenly....

    I would imagine both... I've never heard of a online school before... So do you just stay at home all day long? If so, you should visit reddit.com... It's where all the cool home-alone kids go.

    super... That is awesome... We have like a 7 hour school day... Wake up at like 8 and then go home at 3. Most of the classes are useless imo, because I usually learn things pretty fast.
