Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just multiply. \[5*7\sqrt{8*3} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what times what gives 24, 6*4 so 35(6)^(1/2)*(4)^(1/2) or \[35\sqrt{4}\sqrt{6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can we simplify it further

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you can take the square root of 4 which is 2 therefore you are left with 35(2)(6)^(1/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is just equal to \[70\sqrt{6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you take the square root of 2 you end up with an irrational number which can only be approximated

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pokemon, you can just use a calculator to check, if you type that in the calculator, it won't equal the same to \[5\sqrt{8}*7\sqrt{3} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02*2 is = 4, when you take the square of a number it will tell you what two exact numbers can be multiplied together to give you the original number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Radicals are simply the opposite of exponents. If you had just say 3^(3) = (3)(3)(3) = 27 27^(1/3) =3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thus (4)^(1/2) = 2 because 2*2 = 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to memorize the fundamental rule in radicals that (ab)^(1/2) = \[\sqrt{a}\sqrt{b}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you wish to simplify radicals further, usually I'm to lazy to do this though :d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can simplify it further but you don't need to, it depends on the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In your case 35(24)^(1/2) = \[35\sqrt{6}\sqrt{4}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 35 is being multiplied by the radical when (4)^(1/2) is simplified to 2 you are left with 35(2)(6)^(1/2) if you take the square root of 6 you are going to end up with a very ugly number and in mathematics they usually like you to deal with exact numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No problem I hope you have gained a better understanding of radicals, I would recommend look up the fundamental rules of radicals

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the final answer being 70(6)^(1/2) but I will stop posting now :D
