D) sqrt 22 simplifies down to E)11(sqrt 2), so I think it's E)

thank you veery much!

actually \(\sqrt{22} \neq 11\sqrt{2}\)

im stuck with a diff problem do you think you guys could help?

the ratios of a 45 - 45 - 90 right triangle are \(1:1:\sqrt{2}\) so if the hypotenuse is \(22\) then the legs are each \[\frac{22}{\sqrt{2}}=\frac{22\sqrt{2}}{2}=11\sqrt{2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the answer \(11\sqrt{2}\) is the correct answer, but \[\sqrt{22}\neq 11\sqrt{2}\] they are different numbers

For that new problem...you can use @satellite73 explanation again...the 2 legs are equal and the ratio is 1:1:√2 so since you have the hypotenuse √18 you have \[\frac{ \sqrt{18} }{ \sqrt{2} } = \frac{ \sqrt{9}\sqrt{2} }{ \sqrt{2} } = \frac{ 3\sqrt{2} }{ \sqrt{2} } = \frac{ 3(2) }{ 2 } = 3\] so each leg would be 3

at the risk of repeating myself, \[\sqrt{22}\neq 11\sqrt{2}\]

if "simplifies" does not mean "equals" i have no idea what it means
anonymous
  • anonymous
the length of the legs of the triangle is 3 first off, it says so right in the question secondly \[\frac{\sqrt{18}}{\sqrt{2}}=\sqrt{\frac{18}{2}}=\sqrt{9}=3\]

what if it is 4 sqrt 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}\] \[\sqrt{22}\neq 11\sqrt{2}\]

4 sqrt 2 on a 45-45-90 triangle

\[\sqrt{242}=\sqrt{121\times 2}=\sqrt{121}\sqrt{2}=11\sqrt{2}\]

@phknkayy if they hypotenuse is \(4\sqrt{2}\) then the side has length \(4\)
