Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Let us see then. To do this question we need to know two things. What is irrational and rational, and how do we simplify rational expressions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, rational number would be \[\sqrt{25} = 5\] An irrational number on the other hand would be something like\[\sqrt{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now to our equation. \[\sqrt{2} (3 \sqrt{2}+\sqrt{18})\] We can first simplify the 18. Do you know how?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0_ christ. I am not going to help you by giving you only single answers. So back to our question. To simplify\[\sqrt{18}\] we break it down inside. Remember prime factorization? \[\sqrt{3\times3\times2} = \sqrt{18}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0based on that, 3 can be taken out, because it is square root. so now we have \[\sqrt{2}(3\sqrt{2}+3\sqrt{2})\]
