Symplify (radical x/8)

is the answer x (radical 2)/4

i put it to be (x/2 radical 2)* (Radical 2/radical 2)=(x radical 2/4)

  • Math -

    i tried it again. is it (2 radical 2x)/(8)

  • Math -

    It depends if the expression is
    √x/8 where there is no simplification, or
    √(x/8)
    =√x/√8
    =√(x)/(2√2)
    =(1/2)&radic(x/2)
    or, if you wish, it could have been
    =√x/(2√2)

    By the way, if you would like to write √, you could simply write
    & r a d i c ;
    without the intervening spaces.
    Do not forget to add sufficient parentheses or else it would be ambiguous.

    After getting ã(x)/(2ã2)
    why don't u multiply both sides by &radic(2)

  • Math -

    after gettin &radic x/(2 &radic 2) why don't you multiply top and bottom by &radic 2

  • Math -

    ok i kind of get it

  • Math -

    Yes, you have a point:
    =√x/(2√2)
    =(1/4)√(2x)
