Wht do u want to know?

I have this equation, its 3 square root symbol 27/y^6

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
3sqrt(27)  ?? y^6
 2 years ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so the y^6 is not part of the radical correct?

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
for clarification: \[\frac{3\sqrt{27}}{y^6}\]

and you want to "simplify" perhaps?

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sqrt(27) = sqrt(3*3*3) = sqrt(3^2) sqrt(3) = 3sqrt(3) 3*3sqrt(3) 9sqrt(3)  =  y^6 y^6

most math notation has something that will undo it; the relationship between sqrt and ^2 cancel each other out

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so if you can determine a value in the sqrt(...) that can be factored as a ^2; go for it

to make it easier to read: sqrt(27) sqrt(3*3*3) sqrt(3^2) * sqrt(3) 3 * sqrt(3)

so now, it becomes 9 sqrt(3)  y^6
 2 years ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thats as far as I can see to take it
 2 years ago

monika3466Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok, cool... i have another one too... its the square root symbol 9x^6  64y^3

sqrt(filler) is more readable

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sqrt(9 x^6)  ; like thgis? 64 y^3
 2 years ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you should keep in mind that multiplication can split a radical like this: sqrt(9 x^6) sqrt(9) sqrt(x^6) ; now we can work on each of these in their own right

what does sqrt(9) equal?
 2 years ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
3 it is; and for the x^6 part we have to know something about exponents. sqrt is another name for ^(1/2); which means sqrt(x^6) = x^(6/2) = x^3 altogether we get: 3 x^3  64 y^3

ok, so now we try to find the square root of 64; right?
 2 years ago

monika3466Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok.. i think i get it
 2 years ago

monika3466Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so its 3x^3  8y^3
 2 years ago

monika3466Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is that the final answer or is there more to simplify?
 2 years ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
if 64 is included in the radical; thats the umbrella of the sqaure root sign, then you would most likely convert it to 8 yes ... otherwise, leave it as is
