not it isn't. it is equal to -sqrt(-a)(-b)
anonymous
  • anonymous
no it is equal to -1*squrt(a)(b)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, that is the same as what I wrote. (-a)(-b)=(a)(b)

i think we cant not multiply two numbers which are negative inside the sqrt...thats what the logic, i guess...what do u say ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you can do all the arithmetic functions within the square roots. sqrt(20) = sqrt((4)(5))
anonymous
  • anonymous
sqrt(9) = sqrt(5+4)
anonymous
  • anonymous
sqrt(9) is NOT equal to sqrt(4)+sqrt(5)
anonymous
  • anonymous
what u told ll apply for positive numbers..not for negatives...otherwise the question what i posted would have a direct answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
hey actually i saw this, when iam reading abt complex numbers
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, sqrt of a negative number is imaginary. so when you multiply an imaginary number with another imaginary number you get negative(their product) whereas if sqrt(-5)(-4) is given, it means you first multiply what is within the sqrt and THEN calculate the square root. It is kind of an extension of the BODMAS rule.
anonymous
  • anonymous
if is so...then y sqrt(-a)*sqrt(-b) is not equal to sqrt(-a)(-b)....
anonymous
  • anonymous
because you evaluate what is within the square root and then take its square root so sqrt(-a) X sqrt(-b) = i sqrt(a) X i sqrt(b) = i^2sqrt(ab)= -sqrt(ab)
anonymous
  • anonymous
sqrt(number) is also a number. you must treat sqrt(number) as a number.
anonymous
  • anonymous
sqrt(4) must be treated the same way you treat 2. so sqrt (4) X sqrt(4) means you are multiplying two separate numbers.
anonymous
  • anonymous
you first evaluate the sqrt(4) and THEN do the multiplication. so sqrt(4) X sqrt(4) = 2 X 2 = 4.
anonymous
  • anonymous
iam clear upto the part...that...sqrt(-a)*sqrt(-b) is equal to -1*sqrt(a)*sqrt(b)....am i right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so sqrt(-a) X sqrt(-b) means you are taking the number sqrt(-a) and multiplying it by the number sqrt(-b). sqrt(-a) is the number i sqrt(a). sqrt(-b) is the number i sqrt(b). so when you multiply these two numbers you get i^2 sqrt(a)sqrt(b) = -1sqrt(ab)
anonymous
  • anonymous
whereas when you are evaluating sqrt(-a X -b), you treat this as a number too, it is the number sqrt(-a X -b) = sqrt( ab)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes exactly ur right...i agree with u completely..infact thats what i was saying u right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, you were saying that you cannot perform multiplication within square roots, which you can.
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait wait...
anonymous
  • anonymous
if those two r individually correct, then y iam not able to write LHS=RHS, assuming LHS = sqrt(-a)*sqrt(-b), RHS=sqrt(-a)*(-b)....
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think agian v cam to first...
anonymous
  • anonymous
because LHS and RHS have two different meanings. LHS means you are taking the number sqrt(-a) and multiplying it with the number sqrt(-b) RHS means you are evaluating the number sqrt(-a X -b) which is the same as the number sqrt(ab)
anonymous
  • anonymous
then what abt "-" sign...so u mean to say -sqrt(a*b) is equal to sqrt(-a*-b) ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sqrt (a) means square root of the number a. sqrt(-a) means the square root of the number -a. sqrt(-a X -b) means square root of the number (-a x -b) which is the same as square root of the number ab.
anonymous
  • anonymous
hey i think i did typing mistake , while writing parentheses....but i understood ur concept....u r right...i conveyed u a wrong message without including brackets....hope so...but iam clear how "-" has come...
anonymous
  • anonymous
so you have to first evaluate what number it is you are taking the square root of, and then square root it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
r u a math student ?....where r u from ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
google sqrt(-1*-4) and see what the answer is google sqrt(-1) * sqrt(-4) and see what the answer is.
anonymous
  • anonymous
do it now and you will see what I am talking about.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok i ll do it..
anonymous
  • anonymous
just copy and paste what I typed there into google and press enter. google has a built in calculator
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, i'm not a math student. I am from India.
anonymous
  • anonymous
answer is 2, -2
anonymous
  • anonymous
for ur 2 equations
anonymous
  • anonymous
see what I meant? in the first case, the product of (-1 * -4) was done first and then the square root was applied to that number. (-1*-4) = 4. so sqrt(4) = 2 in the second case, sqrt(-1)*sqrt(-4), the square roots were evaluated first, which is i and 2i and THEN they were multiplied. which means i*2i = 2i^2 = -2.

  • anonymous
ya i got it..
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay great. cheers!
anonymous
  • anonymous
r u an engineering student ? ....math is ur favorite subject ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am not a student. I finished graduation last year. Physics is my favorite subject. I just come here to help out sometimes.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok ...i finished my under graduation in Mechanical engineerign from Hyderabad...presently working in a company, chennai....going to do my MS in Industrial Engineering in US...by this july end iam gonna fly...thats y iam just revising my basics before my classes ll start...Maths is hobby..
