Think About It

By using a calculator: 2 V 5 = V3

Concept Check

p. 10

On a number line, 2 numbers lie 0.5 units away from the origin.

The numbers are: +0.5 and V0.5

 

p. 11

V30.1 is on the left hand side of V30.

V30 is larger than V30.1.

 

Think Further

Let's Discuss

p. 23

1. Amy's method

2. (a) (V59) V (V7) = V59 + 7 = V52

@(b) (V33) + (+16) = V33 + 16 = V17

3. (a) (+50) + (V82) = +50 V 82 = V32

@(b) (V27) V (+24) = V27 V 24 = V51
