(sqrt3 + 5)(sqrt3 -3) ?

multiply that out
sqrt3*sqrt3 -3sqrt3 +5sqrt3 -15
now combine and simplify terms.

yes the problems is:

((sqrt3)+5)((sqrt3)-3)
if i put in my calculator what the squareroot of 3 it will give me 1.7

so if i it by decimals i get the follwoing

2.89-5.1+8.5-15 is this right becuase i need to do foil for it correct or no.

NNNNOOOO. don't put it in the calculator.

multiply that out
sqrt3*sqrt3 -3sqrt3 +5sqrt3 -15
now combine and simplify terms.

sqrt3*sqrt3 is 3. The two middle terms add to 2sqrt3
So the answer is 2sqrt3 -12.

I don't know if this is right. directions: Simplify each radical expression. (radical 3+5)(radical 3-3) i think its: radical 3+2 Life would be so much simpler if you would use parenthesis. Did you mean this? (sqrt3 + 5)(sqrt3 -3)
