Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks you can factor 4 and pull it out of the radical

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok forget the radical for a second and factor this: 8x4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0eek no: take out the 4 4(2x1) So now put that under the radical and you can take out the 4 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0√(8x  4) √(8x (1x4) 2√(8x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, you don't ever get that. You get 8x4 = 4(2x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2 * \sqrt{2x1}\] ok then that is basically the farthest you can simplify, have i helped?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unless you have answer choices that say otherwise

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but what if I have a larger problem like √11x  6 ? how would the factoring work then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^ For that type of question, there would be no factoring to it... If they gave that equal to something, then we could solve for x, but factoring is a no.
