Homework Help: MATH (SURDS)

Posted by Frank on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 1:41am.

we have been asked to prove that it is possible to determine the value of a surd using either similar figures or Pythagoreans theorem.

we have been shown how to construct the surd using a compass and ruler. but we now have to prove that our method is correct.

we know that (root)x=(root) a
* (root) b

thanks for any help.
