Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1√ means square root, so √2 means the square root of 2 3√2 means 3 times the square root of 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maybe the pythagorean theorem? Im confused with that too. My tutor gave the the two triangles and it looks like this:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, in that case, let's look at the left triangle first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is a special triangle called a 306090 triangle. the "x" on the bottom represents the length of the side across from the 30 degree angle. the x√3 on the left side means that side is x times √3, and the 2x on the hypotenuse means that the hypotenuse is 2 times the side x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, for example, if the side across from the 30 degree angle is 2, then the side across from the 60 degree angle is 2√3 and the hypotenuse is 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2√3 is the simplest form for that sides value?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0meaning it wont be just a number, right? itll always be something √3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well yea, in this case, but not always

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if x = √2 then x√3 = √2√3 = √6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it really depends on what x is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, but if x is an integer it will be √3, only if its another radical it can be simplified

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, im almost gwtting this but how would you use this in a problem, like how do you multiply or add x√y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do you mean? if it's something like 2√3 you just leave it the way it is
