Math 10 Week 2

This week I learned how to convert an entire radical into a mixed radical and vise-Versa. Although I did have to practice it a few times, I can now understand what to do.

So to find the mixed radical of an entire radical we first must find the factors. The factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24. Next, we find the perfect square, which in this case is 4. So now we can put the 4 and 6 (which is what you have to multiply for by) in the square root. We know that the square root of 4 is 2 so that can leave the brackets but the 6 isn’t a perfect square so it stays. So the final answer is 2\sqrt{6}.
