So we have an irrational number in the denominator. To fix that, let's ummm
\[\large \frac{1}{\sqrt2}\]Here's a quick example, when dealing with a SQUARE (2nd) root, we can multiply the top and bottom by \(\huge \frac{\sqrt2}{\sqrt2}\) and it will end up changing the denominator to a rational number, namely, 2. But in this problem we have a CUBE (3rd) root, so we have to do something a lil bit fancier.
To get a 6 in the denominator we'll need to multiply the top and bottom by \(\huge \frac{6^{2/3}}{6^{2/3}}\)
\[\large \frac{2+\sqrt[3]{3}}{\sqrt[3]{6}} \qquad \rightarrow \qquad \frac{2+3^{1/3}}{6^{1/3}}\]Understand the fractional exponent notation ok? :)
ohhh okay (: i get ya
\[\large \frac{2+3^{1/3}}{6^{1/3}}\left(\frac{6^{2/3}}{6^{2/3}}\right)\]Understand how the bottom will simplify? c:
i believe so lol
now what?
When we MULTIPLY terms with similar bases, we ADD the exponents. So in the bottom we'll get,\[\huge 6^{1/3}\cdot 6^{2/3}=6^{1/3+2/3}\]
\[\huge = \qquad 6^{3/3} \qquad = 6\]
so the bottom is 6 lol
Yah :3
so now the top?
Hmmm the top doesn't work out so nice... maybe there was a better way to do this. One sec lemme think :)
i could give u the possible answers..... they all have 6 under them
oh ok that might help ^^
okay hold on
Oh ok I see what they want us to do. So now that we've taken care of the bottom, we'll write the \(\large 6^{2/3}\) like this \(\large \sqrt[3]{6^2}\) before we distribute it to the top.
\[\large (2+\sqrt[3]3)\sqrt[3]{6^2} \quad = \quad 2\sqrt[3]{6^2}+\sqrt[3]3\cdot\sqrt[3]{6^2}\]And I guess they want us to simplify a bit from here.
okay i see what ur sayying
\[\huge \sqrt[3]{3}\cdot\sqrt[3]{36}=\sqrt[3]{108}\]
This part is a little tricky. You want a FACTOR of 108 that is a PERFECT CUBE.
The following numbers are perfect cubes, 8, 27, 64, 125. Because if you take the cube root of any of those numbers, they'll give you a nice clean value.\[\large 2^3=8, \qquad 3^3=27, \qquad ...\]
It turns out that 108 is divisible by 27!\[\huge \sqrt[3]{108}=\sqrt[3]{4\cdot27}\]
Ah sorry lost my connection D:
27 isnt a possible answer....
27 is a perfect cube! So let's take the cube root of 27.
\[\huge \sqrt[3]{4\cdot27}\quad =\quad \sqrt[3]{4}\cdot \sqrt[3]{27}=\sqrt[3]{4}\cdot 3\]
This is a really awful problem. Is this for algebra or something? D:
algabra 2 :/
So it looks like it isssss probablyyyyyyy .... d. I'm like .. 65% sure :D lol
It's a really annoying problem. Easy to make a mistake on. But I think we did it correctly.
okay thankyou(:could u help me with another?
it's not like that one i promise lol
