## SchoolFreak 3 years ago how do u simplify this? super math QUESTION

O.o

2. bahrom7893

(175/8)r^(5-17/2)=(175/8)r^(5-8.5) = (175/8)r^(-3.5)

3. bahrom7893

or 175/(8r^(7/2)) =

4. CliffSedge

factor out sqrt(r^17)

5. bahrom7893

=175/(8 r^3 sqrt(r))

6. CliffSedge

I'll give it a shot. $\large \frac{175r^5}{\sqrt{64r^{17}}} \rightarrow \frac{175r^5}{\sqrt{64}\times\sqrt{r^{17}}}$

sorry can't draw on a laptop.

$\large \rightarrow \frac{175r^5}{8\times\sqrt{r^{16}}\times\sqrt{r}}$

11. CliffSedge

Can you take it from there @SchoolFreak ?

12. SchoolFreak

nno :/ @CliffSedge

13. CliffSedge

Why not?

14. SchoolFreak

15. CliffSedge

Did you understand the steps I took to get to where I left it? Do you not see how it can be simplified further?

16. SchoolFreak

no :P

17. CliffSedge

Then you should leave this problem alone for awhile and go back and practice more fundamental things.

18. SchoolFreak

can i have the answer real quick i think ik how u got there
