## Jwoolcock one year ago how do you write the square root of -232 in terms of i

• This Question is Open
1. compphysgeek

with $$i^2 = -1$$ you can say that $$-232 = i^2 \times 232$$ and therefore $$\sqrt{-232} = i\,\sqrt{232}$$

2. SnuggieLad

See, i is the square root of a -1 In order to remove it you just take out the negative so it would be $i \sqrt{232}$

3. SnuggieLad

Then you just take the square root of 232 and write it beside the i leaving the remainder inside the radical

4. SnuggieLad

$radical = \sqrt{(number here)} <---$
