Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ \sqrt{11} }{ 5\sqrt{132} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, my internet is really slow today.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For my answer, am I supposed to get rid of the square root in the denominator?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ohh ok well for rationalyze you just need to multiply the fraction by the number on the denominator as a fraction so it equals to one

blackstreet23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2example \[1/\sqrt{2} \]

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think I did that, but I'm not sure that I understood you completely.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so yeah to rationalize that you would have to multiply the previous fraction by the number in the denominator as a fraction I mean \[\sqrt{2}/\sqrt{2}\]

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is the same as multiplying by one

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you are not really changing the fraction itself, just how it looks

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is like if you get a hair cut, you may change how you look but you are still the same person.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2does that help a little?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what have you done so far?

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, I think I did that.

blackstreet23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{1 }{ \sqrt{2} } * \frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ \sqrt{2} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is that the answer on the back of the book?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you did not take this question from a math book? ohh is ok then. I was just wondering so i made sure you had 100% the right answer

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, it is from my math book but we don't have the answers in the book.

PinkSapphire

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right now my laptop is really slow so I'm using my phone but I don't know how to type my answer in because of the radical signs.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ohh just go to equation on the bottom of the text rectangle it has the sigma sign\[\sum_{}^{}\]

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and i just asked because in all my math books we always have the answers so we know we are doing it right haha

PinkSapphire

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1On the phone it doesn't have that.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Could you use your phone as a hotspot so you use the phone's internet on your laptop?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2anyway, just write what you have using root(#)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think I'll try it on the Safari app instead of the OpenStudy app.

PinkSapphire

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, it doesn't have it on there either.

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's working! Okay, this is the answer that I got:\[\frac{ \sqrt{11} }{ 10\sqrt{33} }\]

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just write it how i told you. I will try to get it :D

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Did you get a different answer?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is perfect so far

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but still incomplete

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can factor it a little bit more

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what are the factors of 33?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. so what could cancel?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what are you left with?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2actually \[1/10\sqrt{3}\]

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and the last step is to do what i told you previously

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh yeah, my mistake.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2make a fraction with the rational in the denominator of the first fraction. That fraction must equal to 1

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't understand.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which is the rational on the denominator of the fraction you have now?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so take that rational and make a fraction that equals 1

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you know how to do it?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ 5 }{ 5 }\]

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How did you do that?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ohh no i was just showing you that any number over itself equals one

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or any polynomial

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2over itself is equal to 1

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ \sqrt{3} } = 1\]

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and that is what you would have to multiply so you are not actually altering the fraction, just changing how it looks :P

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not really. I'm sorry, but can you show it to me with numbers?

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you mean the concept that every number over itself equal 1 or how to finish your problem?

PinkSapphire
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How to finish my problem.

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just multiply \[\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ \sqrt{3} } * (previous fraction)\]

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is what i meant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1441502937030:dw

blackstreet23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{\sqrt{3} } * \frac{ \sqrt{1} }{ 10\sqrt{3} }\]

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\dfrac{ \sqrt 3 }{\sqrt 3 } \times \dfrac{ \color{red}{1} }{ 10\sqrt 3 }\)

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes you are right @mathstudent55 even though is the same thing haha i mean 1 and root (1), but yeah for clarity just 1 is better

mathstudent55
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can also do it this way. dw:1441503409900:dw

blackstreet23
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes that is the answer \[\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 30 }\]

PinkSapphire

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, I get it. Thanks @blackstreet23 and @mathstudent55
