3. anonymous

step by step?

4. amistre64

rewrite the given terms in a new way such that they each have the same radicals

5. amistre64

$\sqrt{40}=\sqrt{4*10}=\sqrt{4}\sqrt{10}=2\sqrt{10}$

6. amistre64

you can do the same methods for the 100

7. amistre64

maybe

8. anonymous

im still confused...

9. amistre64

really? sqrt(100) = 10 :)

10. amistre64

theres no good way to combine them i spose

11. amistre64

2sqrt(10) + 10 is the best you can get if im seeing it right
