Simplify each term first. Add/Subtract with radicals works like variables. Only exact same radicals can be added together. You add numbers outside the radical.

You may not know yet, but sqrt of a variable simplifies like this: sqrt(x^4) = x^2 sqrt(x^5) = x^2 sqrt (x) sqrt(x^6) = x^3 Pattern?

Just take half of the power. That part is the power of the variable that goes outside. Any remainder stays inside. \[\sqrt{x ^{5}}y ^{6}z ^{9} = x ^{2}y ^{3}z ^{4 } \sqrt{x}z\]

Break down each one using this method,then combine them all

\[\large \sqrt {75x^2y}-\sqrt{80xy^2}-\sqrt{48x^2y}+\sqrt{20xy^2}\] let's start with \(\large \sqrt{75x^2y}\) \[\large \sqrt{75x^2y} = \sqrt{5*5 * 3*x*x*y}\] for every pair of similar numbers, pull out only 1\[\large \sqrt{75x^2y} =\color{red}{ 5x \sqrt{3y}}\]

do you have a calculator with you?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
if not,your computer always will have one :) just go to the start menu > search > type in calculator, you will need one handy in order to understand how to break down a number
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
So 75 = 25 * 3, yes? think of quarters, if you have 3 quarters, it equals 75 cents ,right? :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
now you have 25, and that = 5*5, right?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
what do you mean? you have to break down a number into it's multiples TILL you get down to the very bare prime factors. this is a little advanced but lets say you have the number 134, it's multipliers, or numbers that can be multiplied together to equal 134, are ONLY 1 and 134. so that means 134 is the bare minimum number

all the numbers circled are the numbers that cannot be broken down anymore. All you do is gather up all these circled numbers, which are 5, 5 and 3., and multiply them, you will get 75 again :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Does that make sense now?...
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Yes you're right :) but you see how 40 can also be broken down to 20 x 2?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
and then 20 can be broken down to 10 x 2 and 10 can be broken down to 5 x 2? Take out a scratch piece of paper and try it with me!:) we'll work on this using a tree diagram :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
punch in 5 x 15 into your calculator, you'll see that it gives you 75, not 80 :(
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
oh! that can work too :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
and 1 can be broken down further....4x4..4s can be broken down to 2x2...getting it? :D

Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
yeah! sometimes a big number can have various multipliers that will equal the same number :P you choose which multipliers you want to break down the numbers with
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
aslong as you can break them down to prime numbers,or numbers that can not be broken down further, i.e. 2's..3's..5's..7's.. prime numbers :P
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
can you try 48 for me? and tell me how you break it down? i'll cross check with you :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
good good,it can be broken down further :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
what are the factors of 12? 4? 6? 8?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
nope. not the same number, just till it cannot be broken down anymore
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
you are correct :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
4 = 2* 2 :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
http://www.mathsisfun.com/prime-factorization.html this will help you understand prime factors :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
oh cause i had no more space lol... sorry about that :\ yes, 4 would have been broke down into 2*2 :) you were right,that's why i deleted it
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
So how you had originally factored it out was absolutely correct!
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Shall we move onto the next one? :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Good job!! you got this :D
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
yaaay!!!!~ Now we'll move on to "pairing" everything that's inside the square root. And you know what? It all works the same way! whether you have variables, or numbers like these :D
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Yes :D it's easier than it looks now that you've understood how to break down the numbers :P (the hard part)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
yess. \[\large \sqrt{75x^2y} = \sqrt{5*5*3*x*x*y}\] You see how you have a pair of 5's, and x's inside the square root? you can pull them out as 1! so if you have 2 5's under a square root,you can pull out 1 of them, and since you have 2 x's under a square root,you can also pull out 1 of those :D then since everything else doesn't have another pair, you leave it inside the square root So... \[\large \sqrt{75x^2y} = \color{red}{5x \sqrt{3y}}\]
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\large \sqrt{\color{red}{2*2}*\color{blue}{2*2}*{x}*\color{green}{y*y}}\] you see how all the colored numbers and variables can be paired up and taken out of the square root? just like the ther one we did?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
no no, remember you don't have a pair of x's,so you can't pull one out., although you are right about 2*2*y
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
ohh okay. Then you are right :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\large \sqrt{80xy^2}=\color{red}{ 4y \sqrt{x}}\]
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
You got it! :D
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Awesome!!! i'm so happy for you :) you're a fast learner!
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\large \sqrt {75x^2y}-\sqrt{80xy^2}-\sqrt{48x^2y}+\sqrt{20xy^2}\] just so we have the problem here haha.
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
You can always rearrange the order ofthe numbers if it makes it easier for you :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
I'll solve it to :) we're working along side eachother! one minute :P
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\large \sqrt{48x^2y} =\sqrt{\color{red}{2*2*2*2}*3*\color{blue}{x*x}*y}=\color{purple}{ 4x \sqrt{3y}}\]
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
you'reright!!!! you're good :D
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\large \sqrt{20xy^2} = \sqrt{\color{red}{2*2}*5*x*\color{green}{y*y}}= \color{blue}{ 2y \sqrt{5x}}\]
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
mmhmm:) do the colors help btw?or are they distracting? D:
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Now we're going to take ALL these things weve factored out, and combine them all. haha.
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\large \sqrt {75x^2y}-\sqrt{80xy^2}-\sqrt{48x^2y}+\sqrt{20xy^2}\]\[\large \color{red}{5x \sqrt{3y}}-\color{red}{ 4y \sqrt{x}} - \color{purple}{ 4x \sqrt{3y}} +\color{blue}{ 2y \sqrt{5x}}\] yep you are right Now we must combine things that aremultiplied by the same square root sign, so \[\large (\color{red}{5x} \sqrt{3y} -\color{red}{4x} \sqrt{3y}) -4y \sqrt{x} +2y \sqrt{5x}\] you leave the square root signs alone and subtract the things highlighted in red
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
So when you subtract, you shall get \[\large x \sqrt{3y} -4y \sqrt{x} +2y \sqrt {5x}\]
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
we can't combine those because they have different factors under the square root...they will stay as is :)
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Hypothetically,if it had been \[\large x \sqrt{3y}-4y \sqrt{3y}+2y \sqrt{3y}\] only THEN we could combine all the terms into one simplified form, but because theyre all different,we cannot combine them. I don't even remember what the choices were lol
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Yeah, it'd most likely be C
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Do you feel like you learnt something here though? xD
