How does the answer "(1- √3)/(2 √2)" equal "( √2 - √6)/4"?
I have no idea how to simploify the first answer - any help will be much appreciated, thanks!
Hey Sekonda.
Using distributive properties and multiplying both sides by (SQRT(2)) gives:
[SQRT(2) - SQRT(6)]/[2*SQRT(2)*SQRT(2)] = [SQRT(2) - SQRT(6)]/4.
All I did was multiply the original expression by SQRT(2)/SQRT(2) which is the same as multiplying by 1.
