It's like this, see? (^_^) You treat the radical \(\large \sqrt2\) as if t were a variable, say, x. If you were faced with, say, 5x + x, what's the answer (in simplified)?

6x

That's right :) And dealing with \(\large \sqrt2\) isn't that much different ^_^ So... that said, what is \[\Large 5\sqrt2 + \sqrt 2\] simplified?

... ... \[\Large 5\color{blue}x + \color{blue}x = 6\color{blue}x\]\[\Large 5\color{blue}{\sqrt2}+ \color{blue}{\sqrt2 } = \color{red}?\]

5 sqrt 2 + sqrt 2 = 6x?

  • terenzreignz
NO!. I said \(\Large \sqrt2\) behaves like a variable like x, I didn't say it IS x.

I suggest you take a closer look at these: \[\Large 5\color{blue}x + \color{blue}x = 6\color{blue}x\] \[\Large 5\color{blue}{\sqrt2}+ \color{blue}{\sqrt2 } = \color{red}?\]

im sorry im really confused is it 6 sqrt 2?
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
YES. Exactly ^_^ \[\Large 5\color{blue}{\sqrt 2}+ \color{blue}{\sqrt2}= 6\color{blue}{\sqrt2}\] Nice to know you get it :)
