I received a pre-alg worksheet in class a while back, but have forgotten/never learned two of the problem methods. They are both because i forgot what the symbol means...
I don't know how to write these questions, so i scanned them. i don't understand what the 3 means on the right one, and i think i got the left one right... that check-mark symbol just means to find the square root, right?
And this one. What does the / part mean?
Thanks in advance.
i see what i did wrong.
i was thinking of the original mistakes i made when i was first learning square roots, because it's been so long...
i was thinking along the lines of "Square = four sides, four corners. The center of the square is the number i want, and the corners must have all the numbers that add up to it."
it was because of a diagram the teacher made that i misinterpreted. ok, i see now. thanks.
