Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, since it's inside the brackets and the whole thing is squared then the negative disappears and the square root disappears too ^_^ so it's 3/2 again lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought there was a rule that said if you square a fraction with a square root in the numerator, then the the denominator gets squared too. so in the above example the √3 becomes 3 and the 2 in the bottom become 2^2 = 4...little confused about fractions and exponents

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait is it sqrt(3) / 2? or sqrt(3/2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it comes from the "unit circle" so its sqrt(3)/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, then when you square it , it will become 3/4, I thought it was sqrt(3/2) lol sorry :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well this is for using de moivre's theorem to find a complex number....i've yet to see anything that large..then i would multiply that by (cos50pi + i sin50pi).....if you're familiar with this math

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Per Mathematica: \[\left(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\right)^2=(1)^2 \left(3^{2/2} 2^{2}\right)=\frac{3}{4} \]
