The dimensions of a rectangular box are sqrt{2}, sqrt{3} and 4(sqrt{6}). Find volume in simplest radical form.

I found the volume to be 24 but is 24 in simplest radical form?

Yes it is, because:

= sqrt{2} * sqrt{3} * 4(sqrt{6})

= 4(sqrt{36})

Then the simpler form is 4(6), because you're reducing just like you would a fraction, such as the simplest form of 81/3 being 27, or 3^3. So, 24 would be the simplest form. - May 5th 2009, 09:55 PMProve It
