Hint √12 = √ (4 * 3 ) = ....?

ilikephysics2Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the sqrt(12) = 2 sqrt(3) so sqrt(3) + 2 sqrt(3) is your solution

sqrt(3) is IMPLIED 1*sqrt(3) . What is 1 + 2?

All i care about is her understanding the methods on how to get it, regardless of how to do it

just follow the method I provided

You didn't provide any method, you provided a solution ..... :/ Here, you can rewrite sqrt(12) like @Chlorophyll said.

sqrt(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

either works 3sqrt(3) or sqrt(3) = 2sqrt(3)

Right, 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.

no answers to computers will accept both such as webassign or webwork

I've tutored for years, and I can assure that this is not the case whatsoever. You can continue being indignant though.

square root 3 value 1.732 so 1.732+2(1.732)=5.196

@rannsan We explain so that you can understand and work by YOURSELF :)

That answer will be an approximation (with round off error). The exact answer is that as has been shown.

@SOMU.kvp You should learn from the others' solution!

Decimal number isn't allowed to solve these types!

They 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.
