Hi,

It's been a long time since algebra so I just want to make sure I'm not making a stupid mistake on my homework. This is true, right?

sqrt(P*t)/sqrt(P) = sqrt(t)

Again, it may be simple, but thanks!

Okay thanks :), and that's because you can't take the square root of a negative I assume?

Yes, you are right!

Here are two ways . . .

Thanks :) By the way, could you tell me how you input things like division and square root signs when you are on the forums?

It called LaTeX code

[tex]\frac{\sqrt{P\cdot t}}{\sqrt{P}}[/tex] gives .

Click on the “go advanced” tab. On the toolbar you will see clicking on that give the LaTeX wraps, [tex] [/tex]. The code goes between them. - Feb 8th 2013, 06:19 PMCoopRe: Division of Variables Question
Ah thanks :) I'm not a coder by any means :/
