Complete the square root of 13 times two equals two times blank.
00:00:07.950 --> 00:00:13.010
To solve this problem, we’ll need to think about the commutative property of multiplication.
00:00:14.160 --> 00:00:18.770
This tells us that two numbers can be multiplied in any order.
00:00:19.460 --> 00:00:26.050
Imagine that we have a rectangle that has a length of the square root of 13 and a width of two.
00:00:26.710 --> 00:00:29.030
This shape has the same area.
00:00:29.830 --> 00:00:34.520
The area doesn’t change if we turn the rectangle on its side.
00:00:35.050 --> 00:00:39.480
And we now have a rectangle that’s two by the square root of 13.
00:00:40.600 --> 00:00:50.040
The commutative property tells us that the square root of 13 times two is the same as two times the square root of 13.
00:00:50.700 --> 00:00:53.530
And we can visualize it in these rectangles.
00:00:54.550 --> 00:01:01.360
Either one of these methods will help us think through the final answer of square root of 13.
