An algebraic exercise with fractions and radicals 2008-11-18
Rubén pose la question :
Question from Rubén, a teacher:

I have the ecuation:

U = [yb / (ab+a^2)]^1/2 + [ya / (ab+b^2)]^1/2

I know for sure this reduces to

U = [y (1/a + 1/b)]^1/2

but I cannot find a way to get into that result!

x = (y^2 - b^2)/2b 2005-09-04
Bob pose la question :
while looking at x=(y2-b2)/2b on a table I was preparing for a graph, I saw that there is a point where x and y get closer to each other's value. By trial and error I tried to find the point where x=y. I saw a number which looked familiar and I realized it was the square root of 2. and so, if y=b(1+square root of 2) then x=b(1+square root of 2) also, or as x=y.
My question is: How can this result x=y when y=b(1+square root of 2) be algebraically derived from the equation x=(y2-b2)/2b without pre knowing it is so?
