## aliceglass20 3 years ago solve for x. 3/x=x/32

1. zzr0ck3r

multiply both sides by x and tell me what you get

2. aliceglass20

you mean 3x32?

3. aliceglass20

or x*x= x squared?

4. zzr0ck3r

we have $\frac{ 3 }{ x }$ = $\frac{x}{32}$

5. aliceglass20

yes

6. zzr0ck3r

so multiply both sides by x and we have 3 = x^2/32 right?

7. aliceglass20

yes but what about the 3?

8. zzr0ck3r

now muliply both sides by 32 now we have 32*3 = x^2 right?

9. aliceglass20

yes.

10. aliceglass20

96

11. zzr0ck3r

ok so now we have x^2 = 96 can you solve for x?

12. zzr0ck3r

note: sqrt(96) = sqrt(16*6) = sqrt(16)*sqrt(6) = ?

@meylispena we are not here to give answers, please let them participate. its not right also

14. meylispena

I deleted it, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

15. aliceglass20

is the answer $4\sqrt{6}$ ?

16. zzr0ck3r

what is sqrt(4)?

17. aliceglass20

oh I didn't even read your replies before I wrote that, my internet shut down for a minute.

18. aliceglass20

2

19. zzr0ck3r

+-2

20. aliceglass20

0?

21. zzr0ck3r

so sqrt(16)*sqrt(6) = +- 4*sqrt(6)

22. zzr0ck3r
