What did you get overall?
I didn't. What did you get?
5. (Original post by EricPiphany)
I didn't. What did you get?
I got 41 -20 sqrt 2
6. (Original post by Elisa2000)
I got 41 -20 sqrt 2
Try again.
7. (Original post by RDKGames)
Try again.
Well, could you show me what the right answer is? Without using a calculator

Show your working and I'll tell you where you went wrong.

51 - 14 sqrt 2/ 3 -2 sqrt 2 both multiplied by 3+2 sqrt 2. Then I got 153 + 102 sqrt 2 - 42 sqrt 2 - 28 - 2 divided by 9-4-2 which gave me: 123-60 sqrt 2 /3. I divided it by three, which gave me 41 -20 sqrt 20

Could you help me with this?

Well you simply multiplied wrong.

Numerator:

Denominator:

Now simplify and carry on.
13. multiply top and botton by (3 + 2(sqrt2)) to rationalize the denominator

EDIT: left for a few minutes and was answered i cri erry tim

isn't it 3-2sqrt(2)
15. (Original post by XOR_)
isn't it 3-2sqrt(2)
Huh? Where?
16. (Original post by RDKGames)
Huh? Where?
The original questions' denominator.
17. If you want my answer:

I got 97 - 60√2

The original questions' denominator.
Yes it is. I'm showing multiplication by the conjugate of it.

Close.

Look, minus sqrt 2 and sqrt 2 when multiplied make minus 2
