Prove that there is no rational root whose square is 12?
I use the proof based on Euclid's Method.Originally Posted by Nichelle14
Do you know that one? It is completely analogous answering your question "Can it do it like sqrt of 2?".

Look here
I can show you how to use this theorem to prove that it irrational.

Are you the same user?

Note, what I prove in that thread in the end is this. "That a square root of an integral number is either integral or irrational"
Note that there is no integer such as, why? Very simple, note the first few values,
it never gives 12, since anything thing greater then 4, will for certainly give a value greater than 12 because this sequence of square are increasing they are simply to big to be equal to 12, thus there is no such . Thus, by the theorem its root must be irrational.
yes. the same. I forgot my password, but figured it out. Does it matter? Should i only use one? Also it depends on what computer i log in at home. I don't always pay attention to what my user name is at the time. My computer automatically remembers the user name and password.
