depending on your class they might ask you to remove the radical from the bottom

Well the question did say divide and simplity if possible. So im not exactly sure how to do that.

to get rid of a radical in the denominator you can multiply the whole thing by something equal to 1. for instance \[\frac{ \sqrt{2x} }{ \sqrt{2x} }=1\]

So it would be? \[\frac{ \sqrt{250^{16}} }{ 1 }\]

What do i do after that?

cherio12Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{250^{16}*2x}=(250^{16}*2x)^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }}\]

So is that the final answer?

what do you know about exponents

swiftskier96Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Like what about exponents specifically?

if you have something like \[(x^4)^3\] what does that equal?
 one year ago

swiftskier96Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Dont you add those together? Or am i mistaken?
 one year ago

cherio12Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you actually multiply them, you would add if it were x^4+x^3=x^7 but (x^4)^3=x^12

Right. Sorry, i get those mixed up. Lol. What now?
 one year ago

cherio12Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay so you have (250^(16)*2x)^(1/2) this is the exponent thing we just went over
 one year ago

swiftskier96Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So you're saying that you multiply 16 and 1/2?
 one year ago

cherio12Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, so you get \[\frac{ \sqrt{250^8*2x} }{ }\] I believe that is as simp

cherio12Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
as simple as you can get it*..its over sqrt(2x)

Ok cool! Thanks so much!!! :)

Oh my gosh... I am so stupid... Theres an x in 250. It looks like sqrt(250x^16)... Im so stupid...

Does that change the answer?
