Like this? \[\Large \frac{\frac{1}{2}}{\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}}\]

Okay... \[\frac{a}{b} \div \frac{c}{d} = \frac{a}{b} \times \frac{d}{c}\]

I keep getting the answer 1/squr root 3

smagyarBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and its supposed to be 3/ sqr root 3
 one year ago

So you can rewrite it as: \[\frac{1}{2} \div \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\] which equals \[\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{2}{\sqrt{3}}\]

1/sqrt 3 would be correct, except you have to get rid of the squareroot in the denominator.

Why cant it be in the denominator?

The answer is not \(\Large \frac{3}{\sqrt{3}}\).

Oops squr root 3/3 right?
 one year ago

geoffbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
There's nothing wrong with leaving it as \(\Large \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\), although if you understand negative exponents, there's a neater way you could write it.

Is it \[\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 3 }\]?
 one year ago

geoffbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No. You were right with your answer. I was responding to your post that the answer is "supposed to be" 3/sqrt 3.
 one year ago

geoffbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
It's not. You're right with 1/sqrt 3.
 one year ago

geoffbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You're the one that said it's "supposed to be."

how is square root of 3 the square root of 3 =3? i thought it is 1
 one year ago

geoffbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{3} \times \sqrt{3} = 3\] I think he was trying to show how you could get the answer \( \Large \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}\).

He's showing how to get rid of the radical. \(\Large \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\) is the same as \(\Large \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}\).
