\[\sqrt{72} \]
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Okay so some easy steps to start simplifying.
 one year ago

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

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Any idea what 72 can be split into?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ohhhhh. Do you mean like 8 times 9?
 one year ago

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or is that the answer? lol
 one year ago

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

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

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

abb0tBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
You can also use 8 and 9...
 one year ago

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i can simplify 36 into
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{6 * 6}\]
 one year ago

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh yeah, 36= 6 and 2= 1.414214562. do i have to simplify 2?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
correct so we get \[6 \sqrt{2}\] which is our answer.
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ahhhhhhh thanks a lot
 one year ago

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

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so for example, lets use 8 and 9.
 one year ago

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

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i liked the 36 and 2 one better lol. Thanks again!
 one year ago

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so lets see if i have this:
 one year ago

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

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
as long as it's not prime... AHAH..
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{75} = 5\sqrt{3}\]
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok thanks cya later!
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\sqrt{75} = \sqrt{25 * 3} = 5 \sqrt{3}\]
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Hey here is a new type of problem:
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{5} \times \sqrt{35}\]
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Think you can do that?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
hmm Idk man you're asking a lot here... :p
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
lets start off basic. Multiply them together, what do we get?
 one year ago

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well i dont need to get the answer to the equation, i think i just need to simplify it. Its under the section of simplifying
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so do i just simplify each part?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
simplifying is the same thing.
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you 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.
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
We 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)
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
I 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
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would it be sqrt(5) and 35= 7 * 5
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{5} \times \sqrt{7} \times \sqrt{5}\]?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but those are primes....
 one year ago

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

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
sqrt(5) * sqrt(5) = ?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i dont know. So then what do i do?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh didnt see your comment
 one year ago

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

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
we now have our answer.
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so how do i write down this answer?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Math 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.
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
But 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)
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ahhhhhhhh that makes sense! Are you a math teacher or something?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
I just know how much it sucks to not get proper help.....
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah man. Ok well you saved my grade! Thanks again
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
No problem good luck ,anymore questions you can do @konradzuse to get me.
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok lets hope i dont need to do that :P
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
There are lots more math in your future :).
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
:) I just got done with Linear Algebra and Calculus 2 :)
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
im half way through geometry...
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
hey would the answer to sqrt of 9 over 5 = sqrt of 45 over 5?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
dw:1358109390649:dw
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
nope... what's sqrt(9)?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sqrt{3\sqrt{5}}\]

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
dw:1358110687298:dw
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or should it have a sqrt sign over the entire thing?
 one year ago

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

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok thanks. Have a good day
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you can also double check everything with a calculator...
