The answer in my book is \[6i - 2i \sqrt{10}\] I dont know how they got that answer.

You can't take the square root of a negative number

thats why you multiply it by i which is equal to -1

@ksaimouli That's totally wrong. sqrt(a)+sqrt(b) is NOT sqrt(a+b). @ilikephysics2 Yes, You can. That's what imaginary numbers are there for. @karinewoods17 Notice that \[ \Large {\sqrt {8} = 2\sqrt{2}} \]and \[ \Large {\sqrt {32} = 4\sqrt{2}}, \]so \[ \Large {\sqrt {-8} = 2i\sqrt{2}} \]and \[ \Large {\sqrt {-32} = 4i\sqrt{2}} \]Do you see how that works? Now, just add to get 6isqrt(2).

wouldnt it be \[6i \sqrt{2}\] ??

\[\sqrt{-8}+\sqrt{-32}=\sqrt{-8}+\sqrt{-8\times4}= \sqrt{-8} + 2\sqrt{-8}\]

\[3\sqrt{-8}=3i \sqrt{8}=3i \sqrt{2\times4}=6i \sqrt{2}\]

Yes you are correct

Yep. That's exactly what I said, except I explained everything. =P

but... the answer in my book says the answer is \[6i - 2i \sqrt{10}\] How did they get that?

I was making breakfast for my boyfriend.

umm. \[\sqrt{-32}\] breaks into \[\sqrt{-32} = \sqrt{4} * \sqrt{-8}\] which simplifies to \[4i \sqrt{2}\] ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
And yes I try:)

  • anonymous
now what. lol
