The square root of 5 +the square root of 80 = the square root of 5 + square root of 16 times 5 = the square root + 4 and the square root of 5 = 5 and the square root of 5. I am willing to offer medals if who ever helps me is willing to help with a few other problems tomorrow and also explain the process. I will give you medals for each individual problem if you become a fan and help me out with these Radicals and Complex Numbers. Thanks!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You use the rule \[\Large \sqrt{x*y} = \sqrt{x}*\sqrt{y}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, \[\Large \sqrt{16*5} = \sqrt{16}*\sqrt{5}\] \[\Large \sqrt{16*5} = ??\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess? Im super confused I haven't worked on a problem like this in a while. If your familiar with my math lab then that's where I've gotten this problem from.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you can explain the process of how you get the answer too then that will be great as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the square root of 16 is 4 once you take the square root, the square root symbol goes away

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large \Large \sqrt{16*5} = \sqrt{16}*\sqrt{5}\] \[\Large \Large \sqrt{16*5} = 4\sqrt{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THe answer is supposed to be 5 on the square root of 5 im just confused on why that is the answer and how they are getting the answer so that I can other questions like one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so do you see how \[\Large \Large \sqrt{16*5} = 4\sqrt{5}\] ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you took the square root of each one individually right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, the square root of 16 is 4 the square root of 5 is some decimal, so we leave that alone

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, \[\Large \sqrt{5}+\sqrt{16*5} = \sqrt{5}+4\sqrt{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there is a 1 in front of that first sqrt(5) term \[\Large \sqrt{5}+4\sqrt{5} = 1\sqrt{5}+4\sqrt{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the last step is to add the numbers outside the root 5 terms 1+4 = 5 think of it as 1x+4x = 5x where x is equal to sqrt(5)
