2. fearless

3. xRAWRRx3

well, first you just plug in the numbers.|dw:1338519672513:dw|

4. fearless

i have the solution just how do u turn it into a radical

5. fearless

the answer is 5.830951894845301

6. xRAWRRx3

well, before you actually do the square root of the answer, it would just be $\sqrt{34}$ right?

7. fearless

yea

8. xRAWRRx3

well, that's simplest radical form because 34's only factors are 1, 2, 17, 34. and none of these are numbers that you can find the square root of that is a whole number so $\sqrt{34}$ would be in simplest radical form. understand?
