Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\huge\sqrt{75}4\sqrt{8}3\sqrt{32}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nvm how about the first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sqrt{75}=\sqrt{25\times 3}\] right?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that means \[\sqrt{75}=\sqrt{25}\times \sqrt{3}=5\times \sqrt{3}\] for the first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sqrt{8}=\sqrt{4\times 2}\]yes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so far we are at \[5\sqrt{3}8\sqrt{2}\] the \(8\) because it started at \(4\sqrt{8}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2last one is \(3\sqrt{32}\) which is the same as \[3\sqrt{16\times 2}\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then since \(\sqrt{16}=4\) you have \[3\sqrt{16}\sqrt{2}=3\times 4\times \sqrt{2}=12\sqrt2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2putting it all together (we are still not done) you get \[5\sqrt{3}8\sqrt212\sqrt2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is called "simplest radical form" btw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now combine like terms, since the last two both have a \(\sqrt2\) final answer is \[5\sqrt320\sqrt2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so would my final answer be 960 sqrt3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[5\sqrt320\sqrt2\] is , as @misty1212 said

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is because \[8\sqrt212\sqrt2=20\sqrt2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh we dont multiply.. and why does the 2 stay in the sqrt when there are two of them? Shouldnt it just canel out to be 2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the first term has a \(\sqrt3\) in it, you can't combine it with the other two

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good question! because you are adding (subtracting actually) not multiplying

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is like \[5x8y12y=5x20y\] same idea you aren't multiplying anything, just combining like terms

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohhh okay, makes sense! Thanks so much @satellite73 & @misty1212 !
