Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, you can think about multiplying the numbers in front of the radical signs and the numbers under the radical signs separately.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so we have\[(2 \sqrt3 )(2\sqrt6) = 4\sqrt{18}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a 3^2 underneath the radical so you can pull that out\[4\sqrt{18} = 12\sqrt{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012 may be rational, but the sqrt 2 is not, so their product isn't rational either.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so lets say though its like this \[2\sqrt{3}2\sqrt{3}\] is that rational?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well is zero rational? What does it mean to be rational anyways? To be rational means that a number can be represented as some fraction with either the numerator or denominator being odd.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well we can right? I can put \[2\sqrt3  2\sqrt3 = 0 = \dfrac{0}{1}\]
