I think that everybody will agree that \({(\sqrt{9+sqrt{80}}+\sqrt{9-\sqrt{80}})^2}\) is much easier to understand than (sqr root of (9 +sqr root of 80)+sqr root of (9 - sqr root 80))^2.

So, in order to help you with the questions you post more efficiently please use the following guide to write math formulas.

Another Way of Writing Fractions:How to make (a+b)/c to look like \(\frac{a+b}{c}\)

Step 1: Write \frac{a+b}{c}, (note that numerator and denominator must be enclosed in

{ } and you must write out

\frac to tell the system that it is a fraction);

Step 2. Highlight the whole expression and press

m button.

ExponentsHow to make x^12 to look like \(x^{12}\)
