what is the perimeter of a triangle-like shape with sides that are:

sqrt5 - sqrt3
sqrt5 + sqrt3
4

Add the three side length numbers to get the triangle perimeter.

Looks like the sqrt 3 terms will cancel out

what is the perimeter of a square with sides that are sqrt3 + sqrt5 on every side? what is the area? not perimeter area= (sqrt3 + sqrt5 )(sqrt3 + sqrt5 ) Multiply it out. I will be happy to critique your thinking and work.

change 50 to 25*2 sqrt 50 = 5 sqrt2 change 8 to 4*2 Nope: (sqrt3-sqrt5)(sqrt3-sqrt5). remember (a-b)(a-b)= a^2-2ab + b^2 Simplify.Express in simpliest radical form. 1.3sqrt2 +sqrt50 Cannot be solve. Terms have unlike radicals

Assume that no denominator equals 0. sqrt12 - sqrt18 + 3sqrt50 + sqrt75 = (sqrt2^2*3) - (sqrt2*3^2) + (3sqrt2*5^2) + (sqrt3*5^2) = (sqrt2^2*sqrt3) - (sqrt3^2*sqrt2) + (3sqrt5^2*sqrt2) + (sqrt5^2*sqrt3) = (2*sqrt3) - (3*sqrt2) +

A hyperbola is represented by the equation x^2/9 - (y - 1)^2 = 1. Identify the asymptotes of the graph. Out of the options I'm given, it's either these two: y = (sqrt5/3) x + 1 and y = -(sqrt5/5) x + 1 y = (sqrt5/3) (x + 1) and y
