math

how would you simplify this equation:

y = (x+3)/[(4-sqrt(16+h))]

please help me!


you have three variables. I am not certain "simplify" is an appropriate term here.


ohhhh it was my mistake. I meant:

y = h/[(4-sqrt(16+h))]


y = h/[(4-sqrt(16+h))]
rationalize the denominator..

y = h/[(4-sqrt(16+h))] *(4+sqrt(16+h)/(4+sqrt(16+h)

y=h(4+sqrt(16+h)/(16-16-h)
you finish it. check my work.

    How do you find a square root of a number that's not a perfect square? I'm very confused. The book doesn't explain it too well. You can approximate it or simplify it in terms of (products of) square roots of smaller numbers. E.g.
