  1. 1. 2/√3

    A: 2√3 / 3 yes

    2. -18/√6

    A: -3√6 yes

    Add or subtract.

    3. 4√3 - 9√3

    A: -5√3 yes

    4. √8 - 15√2

    A: -13√2 yes

    5. √45 + √20

    A: 5√5 yes

    6. 2√48 + 2√12
    = 2 sqrt (4*12) + 2 sqrt 12
    = 4 sqrt 12 + 2 sqrt 12
    = 6 sqrt 12
    = 12 sqrt 3

    A: 12√3 so yes

    Simplify each expression.

    7. √162

    A: 9√2 yes

    8. √50/9

    A: (5√2)/ (3) I guess so if it is really sqrt (50/9) and not (1/9) sqrt 50 as you wrote it

    9. (√288) / (√8)

    A: 6 yes

    10. (2√126) / (√14)

    A: 6 yes
