Re: Simplifying Irrational Numbersdo u mean by simplifying them as rounding them? Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #3 20060930 16:28:26
Re: Simplifying Irrational NumbersSomething like this: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20060930 16:33:09
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numbersi dont get that.... i thought √ was supposed to find the square root of everythihng Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #5 20060930 16:39:05
Re: Simplifying Irrational NumbersBut it does. √32 is the square root of 32, and 4√64 is the square root of 64 multiplied by 7. #6 20060930 16:44:52
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numbers32 being the square root of 32? that doesnt make sense.the square root of 32 is 5.6568542 Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #7 20060930 16:49:35
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numbers
No, no, and no. What √32 is is a surd. √32 = The square root of 32. To simplify a huge surd, we take something like: Last edited by Devanté (20060930 16:50:10) #8 20060930 17:01:07
Re: Simplifying Irrational NumbersThat's right. It's easier to just write √32 instead of 5.6568542... #9 20060930 17:46:45
Re: Simplifying Irrational NumbersHmm...how about either: #10 20060930 17:50:37
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numbersam i correct? Last edited by Kurre (20060930 18:10:08) #11 20060930 17:52:52
Re: Simplifying Irrational NumbersI think so. Depends on what you mean by simplifying. √100 = Square root of 100 = 10. I guess it would work. #12 20060930 20:29:14
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numberso i get it! so ur just using √32 o signify that its the square root of it.i thought u meant that u have to square it. Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #14 20061003 19:52:43
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numberspls what is the square root of 0(zero) and how do we explain it if is other than 0(zero) #15 20061004 18:44:04
Re: Simplifying Irrational Numbersjimohrazag, the square root of zero is zero.
