Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm, between ten and nine for sure, fraid i cant help u more...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We need to find square's in the number 96. So first start dividing it by 2, until you cannot any longer. I'll do the first two for you:\[96 = 2 \times 48 = 2 \times 2 \times 24 = 2^2 \times 24\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does this make sense how to do the problem?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, 96 is not the answer. I am trying to help you understand how to GET the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Where are you confused?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok after that what do i do

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0keep doing that as many times as you can. right now we're just ignoring the fact that ALL OF THIS is still under the squareroot. Okay?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, we're trying to find how many 2*2's we need to get to equal 96.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so right now, what we have is this \[\sqrt{2^2 \times 24} =\sqrt{96}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i cant use a calcu8lator?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could but 1)you're not suppose to, 2)you wont learn how to do this.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also, neither of those answers are correct.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maybe a better way of saying this is, 2 * what equals 96?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know it is. But i know you can do it!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my computer keeps freezing

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No one is just going to give you the answer. Tell me how you're confused or where you need help and I can help you.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So lets first figure this out. 2*what = 96?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! absolutely correct

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we need to figure out 2*what = 48

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess that last message didn't go through

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great, thats correct. so lets gather up what we have okay?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{96} = \sqrt{2 \times 48} = \sqrt{2 \times 2 \times 24} = \sqrt{2^2 \times 24}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ya this is lagging a lot for me too. sorry Would you say that the equation i just posted is true?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So lets keep going. Ignoring that we already have one square, the 2squared, 2*what=24?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hey don't push me. i'm trying to help you.

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not this thing is lagging

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct, 12. Now 2*what = 12?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct. I'll do the last one. 2*3=6. BUT we don't need that one. we'll just keep the 6 as is.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So lets gather up everything we have okay?

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then 1.5 is that the answer

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember we're trying to find squares which are two of the same numbers multiplied by eachother.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{2^2 * 24} = \sqrt{2^2 * 2 *12}=\sqrt{2^2 *2 *2 *6}=\sqrt{2^2*2^2*6}\] Do you agree that this is correct?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Most importantly, do you under stand everything so far?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great So with squares and squareroots... do you know that the square undoes the squareroot and the squareroot undoes the square?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0example: \[\sqrt{2^2}=2 \ OR\ (\sqrt{2})^2 =2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Did you know that or is this something new to you?

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry im not smart im in a special class for math and reading

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, it's an important thing to remember. Besure to ask your teacher about it next time you see her/him

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's okay. YOU ARE SMART. Everyone starts at the beginning. You're not stupid because you're in low level math. Okay???

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The other thing that is nice to know is that you can split up squareroots using multiplication okay? for example\[\sqrt{18}=\sqrt{2*9}=\sqrt{2}*\sqrt{9}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does this make sense?

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is my last problem then i need the other 4 checked as i did them on my own

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! Now it's your turn to show me what to do next. Use the equation button down below to solve the problem okay? This is what we came up with. \[\sqrt{2^2 * 2^2 * 6}\] From what i just taught you, what parts of this can you solve??

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do i just multiply them all then find the square root of that

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start by separating them into their own square roots.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The whole point of what we did is to figure out what the square root of 96 is, if we multiply everything then we just start back at the beginning.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, i'll do one for you okay? THen you do the rest.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{2^2*2^2*6} = \sqrt{2^2}*\sqrt{2^2*6}\]

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0am i doing it right i dont know

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay i'll show you the next step. \[\sqrt{2^2}*\sqrt{2^2}*\sqrt{6}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the square root of 6 is not a square. Think of a real square. can you draw 6 cubes such that it makes a square?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why are you taking 6 out of the square root? Also 2^2 is 4. but remember what i said about how the squareroot undoes the square? remember that?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the squareroot of 6 is not 3. it's not an easy answer.

narissa
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04*4 then i dont know the 6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it should be 2*2*....what?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope. it's \[2 \times 2 \times \sqrt{6}\]

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does that make sense?

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k what the square root of 6 i thought its 3 but u keep saying no

narissa
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it does but the 6 is confusing me

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lets draw something okay? draw 4 cubes, such that it makes one large cube. okay?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1432926276085:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right. do you see how the cube is 2 by 2 cubes? 2 cubes long by 2 cubes tall? That's a perfect square. AKA 2^2

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So can we draw 6 cubes that make a perfect square?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For this part, you can use your calculator to tell you what the square root of 6 is. 2*2=4 so you have \[4\sqrt{6}\]

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the last step is for you to multiple 4 by whatever your calculator gives you for the squareroot of 6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0GOOD JOB!!!! YEY. Does all of this make more sense now?

narissa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so rounded its 10 or 9.7?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nope. Your question actually wants it to the nearest hundredth. That is two decimals. so you need the squareroot of 6 to = 2.44. make sense?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now multiply that by 4
