Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have this equation, its 3 square root symbol 27/y^6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13sqrt(27)  ?? y^6

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and you want to "simplify" perhaps?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1most math notation has something that will undo it; the relationship between sqrt and ^2 cancel each other out

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to make it easier to read: sqrt(27) sqrt(3*3*3) sqrt(3^2) * sqrt(3) 3 * sqrt(3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now, it becomes 9 sqrt(3)  y^6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats as far as I can see to take it

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sqrt(filler) is more readable

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what does sqrt(9) equal?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so now we try to find the square root of 64; right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok.. i think i get it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its 3x^3  8y^3

monika3466

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

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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
