We can use a nice rule that says (√x)(√y) =√(xy)
Also, we'll rewrite each integer as a root.
For example 10 = √100

So, we get...
A) 10√3 = (√100)(√3) = √300
B) 9√4 = (√81)(√4) = √324
C) 8√5 = (√64)(√5) = √320
D) 7√6 = (√49)(√6) = √294
E) 6√7 = (√36)(√7) = √252

√324 is the greatest

Answer:

B. 9*2 = 18
C. 8*2.XX = 16.XX
D. 7*2.XX = 14.XX
E. 6*2.XX = 12.XX

Hence, correct answer will be (B)

i think you misunderstood the ques.
it is not division., it is square root.
integer* sq.root of an integer

A. \(10\sqrt{3}\)

C. \(8\sqrt{5}\)

D. \(7\sqrt{6}\)

E. \(6\sqrt{7}\)


Let’s estimate √3, √5, √6, and √7.

√3 ≈ 1.7

√5 ≈ 2.2

√6 ≈ 2.4

√7 ≈ 2.7

Thus:

A) 10 x 1.7 = 17

B) 9 x 2 = 18

C) 8 x 2.2 = 17.6

D) 7 x 2.4 = 16.8

E) 6 x 2.7 = 16.2

Alternate Solution:

Another way to get rid of the roots to compare each answer is to square each answer choice:

A) (10√3)^2 = 100 x 3 = 300

B) (9√4)^2 = 81 x 4 = 324

C) (8√5)^2 = 64 x 5 = 320

D) (7√6)^2 = 49 x 6 = 294

E) (6√7)^2 = 36 x 7 = 252

Answer: B
