## anonymous 5 years ago I need help with this √(2)+√(8) what would be all of the steps in completing this?

1. anonymous

$\sqrt{8}$ can be written as $2\sqrt{2}$ because 2 x 4 =8. If you factor the 8 into $\sqrt{2} and \sqrt{4}$ it reduces to whats above.. you should be able to solve from here

2. anonymous

what would i do then?

3. anonymous

$3\sqrt{2}$

4. anonymous

just add them together.. what elecengineer said

5. anonymous

$\sqrt{2} + 2\sqrt{2} = 3\sqrt{2}$

6. anonymous
