\[3\sqrt{-9}\] = \[3i\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
The last one is wrong.

  • anonymous
@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: \[2i \sqrt{3}\]

  • anonymous
The last one should be 9i.

Well think about it WITHOUT the negative.

Now what would you do?
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that a 4 and 18? I would think to factor them to 2 x 2 and 9 x 2 maybe
anonymous
  • anonymous
but inside of the radicals

@Dido525 Oh ok! That made since. I was using 8, 9, and i to make -72
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay :) .

@Dido525 Thank you so much for all your help :) Makes me feel more confident about simplying them!

\[\sqrt{-72}=\sqrt{(-1)\cdot2\cdot 36}\] \[=6i\sqrt{2}\]
anonymous

Okay that works too.

Getting the i right, but need to look at \[\sqrt{81} and \sqrt{16}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
@chaguanas Would I do \[3i \sqrt{3}\] for -81? and 4i or \[4i \sqrt{4}\] for -16?
Zarkon
  • Zarkon
do you know what \(\sqrt{81}\)is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Zarkon 9
Zarkon
  • Zarkon
well...\[\sqrt{-81}=\sqrt{(-1)81}=i9=9i\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Zarkon Ohh so that's how you do it. You wouldn't factor the 9 out to a 3?
Zarkon
  • Zarkon
no
Zarkon
  • Zarkon
for any \(a>0\) \[\sqrt{-a^2}=a\cdot i\] so \[\sqrt{-81}=\sqrt{-9^2}=9i\]
Zarkon
  • Zarkon
\[\sqrt{-16}=\sqrt{-4^2}=4i\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
@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.
