q1: √98 + √18 = ?

√116

10 √4

10 √2

14

2 √29

$$sqrt(98) + sqrt(18) = sqrt(2*49) + sqrt(2*9) = 7sqrt(2) + 3sqrt(2) = 10sqrt(2)$$

q2:√112 − √63 + √28 = ?

√77

9 √7

9 √3

7 √3

3 √7

$$sqrt(112) - sqrt(63) + sqrt(28) = sqrt(16*7) - sqrt(9*7) + sqrt(4*7) = 4sqrt(7) - 3sqrt(7) + 2sqrt(7) = 3sqrt(7)$$

q3:√7 (7 √20 − 7 √75) = ?

14 √5 − 35 √3

5 √14 − 3 √35

35 √5 − 14 √3

35 √35 − 14 √21

14 √35 − 35 √21

$$sqrt(7)*[7sqrt(20) - 7sqrt(75)] =7sqrt(7)*[sqrt(4*5) - sqrt(25*3)] = 7sqrt(7)*[2sqrt(5) - 5sqrt(3)] = 14sqrt(35) - 35sqrt(21)$$

Agree with zooink.

Zooink,

Can you tell me how to generate the sqrt? Do you write the tags or can you click some where and generate such mathematical symbols?

Use the [m ] [/m ] brackets to offset math symbols.
