1. which number below is irrational?
a)√4/9 b) √20 c)√121
Why is the number you chose irrational?

2. express in simplest form:
√48-5√27+2√75

3. solve for x: (√x+2)-3=0

    1. Which numbers are NOT perfect squares?

    2. √48-5√27+2√75
    = √16√3 - 5√9√3 + 2√25√3
    = 4√3 - 15√3 + 10√3
    = -√3

    3. I will assume you meant
    √(x+2) - 3 = 0

    then √(x+2) = 3
    square both sides
    x+2 = 9
    x = 7

    since we squared, we MUSYT verify all answers.

    if x=7
    LS = √(7+2) - 3
    = √9 - 3
    = 0
    = RS

    so x = 7
