E) \(\sqrt{10}\)/10000


\(\sqrt{0.00001}\)

= \(\sqrt{\frac{1}{100000}}\)

= \(\sqrt{\frac{10}{1000000}}\)

= \(\sqrt{\frac{10}{10^6}}\)

= \(\frac{√10}{10^3}\)

Hence, answer will be (C) \(\sqrt{10}\)/1000

Rewrite equation as \(\sqrt{1*10^{-5}}\), where 1 will come out as 1 and \(10^{-5}\) is \(10^{-4}*10^{-1}\) when divided by 2 ( square root) will be \(10^{-2}*10^{-1/2}\)

\(1/{100*\sqrt{10}}\)

to get rid of square root in denominator we multiply both sides with \(\sqrt{10}\) and get \(\sqrt{10}/{100*10}\).
Answer C


+1 If you liked it :P

the answer is attached. this question was tricky because the exponents and roots component. thanks for your responses, you helped me to better understand this problem.

Rule #1: √(a/b) = (√a)/(√b)
Rule #2: √(ab) = (√a)(√b)


So, √0.00001 = √(1/100,000)
= (√1)/(√100,000) [applied rule #1]
= 1/(√100,000)

Let's take a closer look at √100,000
√100,000 = √(10,000 x 10)
= (√10,000)(√10) [applied rule #2]
= 100(√10)

So, 1/(√100,000) = 1/100√10
Check the answer choices...not there.
Looks like we need to "fix" (rationalize) the denominator (for more on this, check the video below)
Multiply top and bottom by √10 to get: (√10)(1)/(√10)(100√10)
Simplify: (√10)/1000

OA: C
\(\sqrt{0.00001}\) = \(\sqrt{10^{-5}}=10^{-2}*10^{-\frac{{1}}{{2}}}= \frac{1}{{100\sqrt{10}}}\)
Multiplying numerator and denominator by \(\sqrt{10}\)
\(\frac{{1}}{{100\sqrt{10}}}\)\(*\)\(\frac{{\sqrt[]{10}}}{{\sqrt[]{10}}}\) \(=\frac{{\sqrt[]{10}}}{1000}\)

\(\sqrt{0.00001}\)

=\(\sqrt{10^{-5}*1}\)

=\(\sqrt{10^{-6}*10}\) --> Easier to get \(10^{-6}\) out of the square root

=\(10^{-3}\)*\(\sqrt{10}\)

=\(\frac{1}{10^3}\)*\(\sqrt{10}\)

=\(\frac{1}{1000}\)*\(\sqrt{10}\)

=\(\sqrt{10}\)/1000
