Solve the following equation

2w^2=360

Solve for w:

2w2 = 360

Divide each side of the equation by 2

2w2
2
=
  
360
2

w2  =  360
  2

w  =  360
  2

Using our radical expression calculator, we can simplify this

w2 = 180

Take the square root of each side:

w2= √180

w= = ±√180

Simplify √180

Checking square roots, we see that 132 = 169 and 142 = 196

Our answer is not an integer, so we try simplify it into the product of an integer and a radical.

We do this by listing each product combo of 180 checking for integer square root values below:

180 = √1180

180 = √290

180 = √360

180 = √445

180 = √536

180 = √630

180 = √920

180 = √1018

180 = √1215

Find the highest integer square root

The highest factor that has an integer square root is 36

Therefore, we use the product combo √180 = √365

Evaluating square roots, we see that √36 = 6

Final Answer

w = ±6√5





What is the Answer?
w = ±6√5
