# math , question

Can someone give me an example of how might anyone apply radical expressions and their applications to the daily life of themselves.

Well square root of 25 is 5
now A^2 + B^2 = C^2
We need to see if a box is square. So we measure down one side 3' the the other 4'. Now we take a diagonal measurement. If it is 5' then we know it is a square box.

LANCE,
BUT IN OUR DAILY LIFES DO YOU THINK ONE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT AND IS THIS DEALING WITH RADICAL EXPRESSIONS

3,4, 5
6,8, 10
12, 24, 20
Used these for years to check house footers for being square.
Also one can take a diagonal from the footer forms from corner to corner and know ahead (by math) what it should be; then set them so they are ready for concrete. And yes, any square root is a radical expression.

Is there any way math homework can be easy and fun?
