Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay so some easy steps to start simplifying.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2First you're going to want to try to split that 72 into something you know can factor.

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Any idea what 72 can be split into?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhhhh. Do you mean like 8 times 9?

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, or like tyou said 36 times what? Your first guess was correct.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or is that the answer? lol

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now can you simplify sqrt(36 or sqrt(2)?

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2WE don't split it up, so sorry if that last comment is confusing....

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2WE can just look at each piece now, and determine what's needed....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can also use 8 and 9...

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, we can abb0t.... but this is easier. I was going to show 8 and 9 after.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i can simplify 36 into

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nono, we don't need to simplify it that way. I meant does sqrt(36) or sqrt(2)= anything?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah, 36= 6 and 2= 1.414214562. do i have to simplify 2?

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2correct so we get \[6 \sqrt{2}\] which is our answer.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahhhhhhh thanks a lot

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we don't need to simplify 2, we just need to get it into it's simpliest form.

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so for example, lets use 8 and 9.

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sqrt{72} = \sqrt{8 * 9} = 3 \sqrt{ 4 * 2} = 2 *3 \sqrt{2} = 6 \sqrt{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Its' really just trying to take some ugly sqrt thart we cannot solve and split it into things that we can solve for :).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i liked the 36 and 2 one better lol. Thanks again!

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah, it's easier, but you can see how it can be applied with any set :). Good luck, I hope you understand the concepts.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so lets see if i have this:

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure, throw up a random # and lets see if we can solve.

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2as long as it's not prime... AHAH..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{75} = 5\sqrt{3}\]

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sqrt{75} = \sqrt{25 * 3} = 5 \sqrt{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hey here is a new type of problem:

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{5} \times \sqrt{35}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Think you can do that?

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm Idk man you're asking a lot here... :p

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets start off basic. Multiply them together, what do we get?

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or, if you want, you can split sqrt(35) into 2 parts, and go that way :).

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i dont need to get the answer to the equation, i think i just need to simplify it. Its under the section of simplifying

anonymous
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do i just simplify each part?

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2simplifying is the same thing.

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you basically are given an eq, to solve. IT could be multiplication, addition, etc, etc. Then you want to use the elements to combine and form something you are able to simplify and take something out of the sqrt. That is our main objective, to get a real number.

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We are doing exactly what we did before, exept we are adding an additional step. Instead of 35 and 5, we had 36 and 2. or 9 and 8(9 * 4 *2)

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I guess above I shouldn't have said you shouldn't split them out, because in the end you can, and it doesn't matter.... sqrt(36) * sqrt(2) is the same thing

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be sqrt(5) and 35= 7 * 5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{5} \times \sqrt{7} \times \sqrt{5}\]?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but those are primes....

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yessir, but you can combine them in other ways, no?

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sqrt(5) * sqrt(5) = ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont know. So then what do i do?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh didnt see your comment

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Always remember when we have 2 of the same sqrt() we get the actual number

KonradZuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we now have our answer.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do i write down this answer?

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Math is awesome that you can combine and move things around to find whatever you need. Lets say we have sqrt(3) sqrt(3) and sqrt(4) the 2 sqrt(3) become a 3. and the sqrt(4) becomes a 2. Our answer is 6.

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2But if we had lets say sq(15) and sqrt(3) we will have to split up the sqrt(15) into sqrt(3) sqrt(5) and then another sqrt(3) which we end up getting 3sqrt(5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or should it have a sqrt sign over the entire thing?

KonradZuse
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2think about it. sqrt(9)/sqrt(5) is the same thing as sqrt(9/5) sqrt(9) is 3.
