# maths c1 - surds. lol (i'm failure) Watch

Announcements
1. 11¬72/5¬32

¬ = square root

Well, this question should be fairly straightforward, but I keep getting the answer (33¬2)/10

I checked with a calculator and it told me the answer was 33/10

I feel like I'm going mad with some of these questions

Can someone please point out where I've gone wrong??
That root 2 shouldn't be in my answer

Thank you.

OH MY GOD IT'S THAT SIMPLE

I feel like such an idiot now. Completely. Cannot believe I didn't think to do this IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Emotions are running high, i'm sorry.
Anyway, Thank you very much for this.
