Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@dido525 Oh wow!! Thank you. I can't believe I'm doing these somewhat right lol. Would it be \[3i \sqrt{3}\] ?? And there was also a problem that was \[\sqrt{72}\] I got: \[2i \sqrt{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Getting the i right, but need to look at \[\sqrt{81} and \sqrt{16}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@chaguanas Would I do \[3i \sqrt{3}\] for 81? and 4i or \[4i \sqrt{4}\] for 16?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know what \(\sqrt{81}\)is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well...\[\sqrt{81}=\sqrt{(1)81}=i9=9i\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Zarkon Ohh so that's how you do it. You wouldn't factor the 9 out to a 3?

Zarkon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for any \(a>0\) \[\sqrt{a^2}=a\cdot i\] so \[\sqrt{81}=\sqrt{9^2}=9i\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sqrt{16}=\sqrt{4^2}=4i\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Zarkon Oh alright! I'm not sure if my teacher taught me about the a>0 thing but that makes sense. Thank you very much :) Explained a lot.
