Scribe.com

Hello! =_=

Today in class I found out I was the scribe. Timathy picked me by the way. Well today in class we came in as usual and Mr. Kuropatwa put questions on the board for us. A question he gave us was:
2√3 + 4√3 - 5√3
He told us to look at it closely. Some students got it and others were still searching into it. Mr. Kuropatwa said:

2√3 + 4√3 - 5√3
is like
2x + 4x - 5x

Moral of the problem is the patterns we can look at. The answer is √3, because 2+4=6. 6-5=1. The root 3 is a like radical and cannot be simplified anymore, so we leave it.

We were given another question similiar to it.
2√3 + 3√3 - 5√2
As students we all had different ideas on how to solve it. It's just like, like terms. The two root 3's are like the same as the first question. So we add 2√3 + 3√3 = 5√3. Since √3 and √2 are unlike radicals we leave them.
5√3 - 5√2
We all know Mr. Kuropatwa likes to get more detailed, so he showed us that we could find a common factor. Which in this case, is 5. We can end our answer off as: 5(√3 - √2)

√12 + √48 - √75
Mr. Kuropatwa gave us this and told us to solve it. I don't want to mention any names but Jordan helped me with this one. He's very smart, lol. He told me to solve each root, so I did. Magically I got:
2√3 + 4√3 - 5√3
= √3
There is so many ways to write 1 number. ^__^ It'd be easy just one number, that way everyones happy! ;D Later on Mr. Kuropatwa showed us how to find the square root of any number. For me it's still complicated. So it would be very difficult for me to type it out and try to explain how.

Tonights homework is EXERCISE 33. Questions 1-20. OMIT 12 & 17! WELL WELL WELL, THE PART EVERYONE IS WAITING FOR... BWAHHAHAHAHAHA! ._. By the way Timathy, I know your fourth period class! Well the scribe for tomorrow is.. *drum roll* ... "STEVENF" HAHAHA HOW DO YOU LIKE DEM APPLES! ^___^
