Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so \[\sqrt{75}=\sqrt{25\times 3}=\sqrt{25}\times \sqrt3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can enter in the equation and it gives you the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you end up with \[5\sqrt3+\sqrt3\] combine like terms to finish

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@satellite73 wouldn't the like term make 6 or do i just write it out and don't add them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, we got to the point of \(5\sqrt{3}+\sqrt{3}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is that correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.25x+x=6x and same way, it follows that 5√3 + √3 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i don't add the 3's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are adding the "squarerootof3" five times, PLUS "squarerootof3" one time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.25(something) + 1(something) = 6(something) (as long as we are talking about the same something)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.25 + 1 = 6 5x + 1x = 6x 5 bees + 1 bee = 6 bees 5a + 1a = 6a 5√3 + 1√3 = 6√3 compare these

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are adding the number of times of which you have a √3. you have five square roots of 3, and then you add one more square root of 3. how many square roots of 3 do you have together?

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, so 5√3 + 1√3 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if so that would be 6√6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we don't add the square root inside, just 5√3+1√3=(5+1)√3 = 6√
