Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the sqrt(12) = 2 sqrt(3) so sqrt(3) + 2 sqrt(3) is your solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sqrt(3) is IMPLIED 1*sqrt(3) . What is 1 + 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just follow the method I provided

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You didn't provide any method, you provided a solution ..... :/ Here, you can rewrite sqrt(12) like @Chlorophyll said.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sqrt(12) = the terms sqrt(4) * sqrt(3) sqrt(4) = 2 which stays on the outside of the radical 2sqrt(3) + sqrt(3) which is the solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1either works 3sqrt(3) or sqrt(3) = 2sqrt(3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, but one is simplified all of the way, and one is not. If you are providing answers to a computer (all too common), it will complain that it is not completely simplified. It's important to see how they add like that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've tutored for years, and I can assure that this is not the case whatsoever. You can continue being indignant though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0square root 3 value 1.732 so 1.732+2(1.732)=5.196

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That answer will be an approximation (with round off error). The exact answer is that as has been shown.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@SOMU.kvp You should learn from the others' solution!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They are approximations. You can't always just plug and chug to get numbers out. For example. Pi = 3.14...this is an approximation and is far from exact. Pi, is exact. Similarly sqrt(3)... 1.73 is an approximation. sqrt(3) is exact. When you have problems that grow to a page or fill a chalk board, doing rounding like this will give you VERY wrong answers especially if you do it early in the problem. It's called error propagation. Google it.
