(B) 75 = 25 ⋅ 3 = 5 3 Exercise 1 1. (E) 4 27 = 4 9 ⋅ 3 = 12 3 12 = 4 ⋅ 3 = 2 3 5 3+2 3=7 3 2 48 = 2 16 ⋅ 3 = 8 3 147 = 49 ⋅ 3 = 7 3 12 3 − 8 3 + 7 3 = 11 3 2. (B) 125 = 25 ⋅ 5 = 5 5 45 = 9 ⋅ 5 = 3 5 5 5−3 5 = 2 5 2. (B) 80 = 16 ⋅ 5 = 4 5 3. 4. (D) (B) 2 = .4 x 2 = .4 x x=5 9 x ⋅ 4 x = 36 x 2 = 6 x 45 = 9 ⋅ 5 = 3 5 20 = 4 ⋅ 5 = 2 5 4 5+3 5−2 5 =5 5 .16 = .4 Multiply by x. 3. (C) Only terms with the same radical may be combined. 6 5−4 5 =2 5 3 2+ 2 =4 2 5. 6. (C) Since the last digit is 6, the square root must end in 4 or 6. (B) Since the number has two digits to the right of the decimal point, its square root will have one digit to the right of the decimal point. (E) 25 x 2 + 36 x 2 61x 2 61 = =x 900 900 30 Therefore we have 2 5 + 4 2 4. (B) 1 1 ⋅ 180 = ⋅ 36 ⋅ 5 = 3 5 2 2 7. 8. (E) It is not possible to find the square root of separate terms. (C) 8 12 23 = 4 4 = 4⋅2 = 8 9. 1 1 ⋅ 45 = ⋅ 9 ⋅ 5 = 3 3 2 2 ⋅ 20 = ⋅ 4 ⋅ 5 = 5 5 4 3 5+ 5− ⋅ 5=4 5 1 16 =3 5= 5 5 5 5 4 5 5 4 5 5− 5 10. (D) ( 2 )( 2 ) = 2 . Therefore, 5.
