    Hiya,

    (Please bear with how stupid this question is) but is there a method that will help find the factors quickly so I can answer questions like this:
    List that all the factors which make up the number and see if one of the numbers is a square number
    Example squroot12
    So 12=1*12 no square nums here
    2*6 no square mums here
    3*4 square num there (4 is the num)
    Square root 4* square root 3=square root 12

    So u can simplify square root 4 in to 2 be cease 2*2= 4

    2*squre root 3
    Is answer

    Remember u can't make square root3 into an whole number


    Goodluck and get an a in as levle maths if u don't I will beat u up

    Yeah I did the same thing, but I was just wondering if there was a faster method on finding the factors? Because if you were dealing with larger numbers (e.g. question r: squareroot of 208), it would take a little while to list out all the factors etc

    Ahah, I do further maths so does that mean if I don't get two As then you'll beat me up or will 1 A suffice?

    You only need to check which square numbers are factors.

    For example, 208 = 52*4 = 13*16. For even numbers, it's often easiest to begin by seeing if 4 is a factor.
