is that \[\sqrt{\frac1{4x^2}}\]?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
\[\sqrt{\frac1{4x^2}}=\frac{\sqrt1}{\sqrt{4x^2}}=\frac{\sqrt1}{\sqrt{4}\sqrt{x^2}}= \dots\]

Oh so would the final answer be x/2 ?

SO you multiply 2x on both sides, giving us 2x? or do you have to do something with the √1?

don't multiply anything, just simplify each square root term

√1/2x

  • UnkleRhaukus
yeah that's right, and you can simplify √1

The only thing I don't understand is that the x does not have a specific place, so can we determine that it is the bottom or the top, and if so how?

oh, i interpreted your question wrong.

\[\sqrt{\frac14x^2}=\sqrt{\frac14}\sqrt{x^2}=\frac{\sqrt1}{\sqrt4}\sqrt{x^2}=\frac{1}{2}x=x/2\] as you said originally

NB we have only computed the principal square roots
