#### Question

Find the value to three places of decimals of the following. It is given that

sqrt2 = 1.414, sqrt3 = 1.732, sqrt5 = 2.236 and sqrt10 = 3.162

3/sqrt10

#### Solution

We know that rationalization factor of the denominator is sqrt10. We will multiply numberator and denominator of the given expression 3/sqrt10 by sqrt10to get

3/sqrt10 xx sqrt10/sqrt10 = (3 xx sqrt10)/(sqrt10 xx sqrt10)

= (3sqrt10)/10

= (3 xx 3.162)/10

= 9.486/10`

= 0.9486

The value of expression 0.9486 can be round off to three decimal places as 0.949.

Hence the given expression is simplified to 0.949.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
