Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Like this? \[\Large \frac{\frac{1}{2}}{\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay... \[\frac{a}{b} \div \frac{c}{d} = \frac{a}{b} \times \frac{d}{c}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I keep getting the answer 1/squr root 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and its supposed to be 3/ sqr root 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you can rewrite it as: \[\frac{1}{2} \div \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\] which equals \[\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{2}{\sqrt{3}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/sqrt 3 would be correct, except you have to get rid of the squareroot in the denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why cant it be in the denominator?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The answer is not \(\Large \frac{3}{\sqrt{3}}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oops squr root 3/3 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There'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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is it \[\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 3 }\]?

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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how is square root of 3 the square root of 3 =3? i thought it is 1

Best 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 \( \Large \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1He's showing how to get rid of the radical. \(\Large \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\) is the same as \(\Large \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}\).
