Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have to put it into square root form.. how do I do that to the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, you have to do find the area using a square formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, the question is as states, but it has to be put into a square root answer. I don't understand how to do it.. All the questions on this assignment are like this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would this be my equation \[A= 3\sqrt{3}\left( 6 \right)^{2\frac{ }{ ? }}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i do this equation on my phone it comes out to 93.5307436097.. but it needs to be in the way I showed you. How do I make it into that way?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can also divide it into triangles and figure out a formula tht way.A hexagon is: dw:1439445847902:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0abb0t i showed that to him. He is more confused about it than just the regular area of hexagon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My phone did it myself, and actually im not a guy.. Im a senior girl. I know Im not good at this, Im better at algebra. so basically @Shalante my answer is right that is just reduced?

abb0t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0therefore, \(\sf \large \color{blue}{\frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2}6^2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hey chevy253, stop using your calculator to solve it, since the answer does not requires it. Understand????

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea, just reduce the fraction, but leave the square root alone.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont know how to do it without a calculator.. and all my calculator keeps doing is reducing it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0memorize the first 4 square roots, 04 it will help a lot during exam time. \(\sf \sqrt{2} \approx 1.4\) \(\sf \sqrt{3} \approx 1.7\) \(\sf \sqrt{4} = 2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know why your answer requires a square root? because it has a square root as you can see. Now put that square number in your answer. And to the other fraction

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the other fraction just solve it and put it there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if i put this \[3\sqrt{3}\] i have to have another number in front of it. if you look at the picture there are two numbers before the square root and only one after

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so if i leave the sqaure root alone i come up with this \[3\sqrt{3 \left( 36 \right)}\] over 2.. is that right so far?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 36 is out of the square root.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if its out then 36/2 is 18.. but then how would i plug that into the way the answer is supposed to be?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would I multiply it...?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you forgot to multiply the 36 by 3, then you divide it by 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so I leave the 3 in front of the sqare root alone, but use the one behind it? so it would be 54.. but that still wont work.. I feel like im still doing it wrong. I came up with this \[A= 3\sqrt{54}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here, just look. Nice job for trying. \[\frac{ 3\sqrt{3} }{ 2 } r^2\] r=6in Plug in r with 6 \[\frac{ 3\sqrt{3} }{ 2 }(36)\] \[\frac{ (36)(3)\sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\] \[\frac{ 108\sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\] \[=54\sqrt{3}\]
