Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you, why is it false, Im having a hard time figuring out how to solve the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your equation implies sqrt(2)=1 which is indeed false

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because the 4sqrt2 is connected, and therefore you would have to be divided to be separated.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you divide by 4 it would make the sides unequal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just to make sure I fully understand, 284sqrt 2 ( the 4 and the two is connected) in order to make them seperated I would have to divide???? this is where I am confused...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes 4 and sqrt(2) is connected.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide by 4 if you want to separate rt(2) and 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to try to simplify this you would subtract the 28 from the left side to get: 4sqrt(2)=24sqrt(2)28. [4sqrt(2)]/4=[24sqrt(2)28]/4. so the final answer would be that sqrt(2) does not equal 6sqrt(2)7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try and solve it and you would discover: \[284\sqrt{2}=24\sqrt{2}\] \[28=24\sqrt{2}+4\sqrt{2}\] \[28=28\sqrt{2}\] Obviously that is false.
