so i'm doing review from last year and i can't remember how to do this question. It seems pretty straight forward but i don't want to just keep doing them the wrong way so if the pit can help me it's all good. The question is :

Simplify:
6 + (radical 32)
4
Guitars
Godin Velocity w/ Schaller locking tuners
Ibanez RG7321 w/ Dimarzio Crunchlab & Liquifire
Seagull Coastline S6 Burst GT QI
Random Ibanez Bass

24576?

I can't remember this stuff...

Edit: According to my calculator I was way off...

why do people keep asking the pit for math help? dont you have any Asian friends?
Roses are red
Voilets are blue
The only bulge in my pocket is my wallet
No i'm not happy to see you

I tried asking Ex'sAndOh's

He didn't help me at all
McLovin is my hero!

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

The correct answer is

(3/2) + (radical 2)

You get that by...

Square root of 32 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

Since there are 2 groups of two, you take a "2" out for each, leaving only one "2" behind. The two "2"s you take out multiply and you get 4. So then you get

6 + 4x(radical 2) / 4

6/4 = 3/2

4x(radical 2) / 4 = radical 2

final answer is (3/2) + radical 2

hold up i thought you couldn't reduce the expressions unless they are multiplication or division, not addition or subtraction

Right. But that first expression (the problem you are solving) is the same thing as 6/4 + (radical 32) / 4. You can separate the 4 and place it under each of the terms that have a "+" or "-" between them. When you finally simplify the radical, the "4" out in front cancels.

I can confirm this.

It's the same as (x + y)/3 = x/3 + y/3

Yes sir. Thing about it. Go from one to the other. The denominators are the same, so therefore they can be added, or subtracted.
