Last one hopefullyFind the square root of (3/2)(x1) + (sqrt(2x^2  7x  4)) #3 20050518 07:58:46

Re: Last one hopefullyIm not having any better luck with this problem #5 20050518 18:38:28
Re: Last one hopefullyi hate maths if hitler was maths, wed all be dead by now #6 20050518 19:39:17
Re: Last one hopefullyIn other words ... Hitler/Maths would have had the power to defeat the Allies, and then would have gone on to kill everyone he now successfully ruled?

Re: Last one hopefullySo does anyone have any idea on how to do this problem? #11 20050519 21:32:52
Re: Last one hopefullyHe did ... I don't know what he replaced it with either. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20050520 01:34:36
Re: Last one hopefullyA ferret reaper. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #15 20050521 08:51:53
Re: Last one hopefullywell anyways back to my original question, I got some help from a friend and they said to start by making the (3/2)(x1) into one term, and then multiply the sqrt by something that will allow you to combine it with the expanded fraction, then go from there. And they said that the final solution will end up with a square root inside of a square root, and that there wasnt a way that they knew to get around it. #16 20050521 20:03:06
Re: Last one hopefullyThen, we'll first need to multiply out the brackets. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #17 20050522 05:28:20
Re: Last one hopefullyYes it is a 3 divided by a 2. Now after following some of their advice I combined both terms to make one term which is: (3x  3) + (sqrt(2x^2  7x  4)) All divided by 2. But I can't get any further at the moment #18 20050527 03:37:28
Re: Last one hopefullyhey who ever u r i got the answer for u.telling u something tht go order wise and get ur answer. #19 20050527 07:45:22
