given that the sqrt(41) is irrational..
Show that it is irrational by the fact that the
sqrt(41) is irrational.

How about by contradiction?
What happens if is irrational?
I have the sqrt(41)+5=p/q
but how does it help knowing the sqrt(41)=irrat.
What if you subtract 5 from both sides?
Anything wrong with this?
still cant see it
We have a rational subtract another rational . What kind of number results?
Rat - rat = rat
I tried the prob before I submited it..
I appreciate u trying to me to get to think but
I posted it to get a complete proof..
So anyone ELSE please prove
You have it right there. First, you are given that is irrational. Then, you said that is rational, since a rational subtract a rational is rational. Hence, is rational and irrational.
Isn't this a problem?
ok partner, i can see it..thanks for sticking it out
If it's any use to you, it's also possible to write .
