This one is kinda simple, but I got stuck in the middle with the radicals with the 2ab part

I applied the formula of (a+b)^2

end got to 18 + 2 ab, where a is the first radical and b is the second one. Please explain

Hi uvs...

Use the sqrt(A) x sqrt(B) = sqrt (AxB) method for the middle part.

BTW, is the answer E?

2*[sqrt(9+sqrt(80))*(sqrt(9-sqrt(80))] ==>

2*[sqrt((9+sqrt(80)*(9-sqrt(80)))]

so now you can do (a-b)^2

Thanks Rookie and Nsentra,

i almost forgot about that multiplication radical rule. LOL! I guess thats what happens when you start worrying about the complex crap, and the basic stuff starts getting screwed. Have to go back to the basic formula sheet :wink:

Yeah the answer is E
