Hahahaha, I remember learning that in algebra in 7th grade! Everyone else was so confused, and I'm like, are you kidding? It makes so much sense. And now I'm taking geometry and I don't understand anything at all.
a root doesn't necessarily mean 3 or more you're taught this in freshmen year
how old are you?
guess i should have known you were an asshole due to your username
Doh sorry didn't mean the cube root that just caused more unneeded confusion. He poured the root beer into a cube glass not a square glass because squares are only of the 2nd dimension and are incapable of being a 3rd dimensional object that could hold liquid. So since he poured the root beer into a cube glass you would have (sqrt)x^3 which wouldn't cancel it out. Finals killed my math brain.
He inst talking about the root, the wrong part is the square. You cant have "square" cup, a cup is a 3D object so it can hold the liquid, so a "square cup" is actually a cube.
"a root doesn't necessarily mean 3 or more you're taught this in freshmen year"
I have no clue what you are trying to say to me. A square root of a number is a number multiplied by it self to give you that number. a cube root is it self multiplied three times, I am still unsure what you are trying to tell me. I asked you when was the last time you POURED ANYTHING INTO A SQUARE!? You know those things that are in two-dimensions...
but a "root beer" can be any root from square to cube to infinity
that's why when he squared it he got regular beer
I don't even understand your point and I don't see why it is important for the dimension of the object to be 2-D
Bro. Forget. The. Root. Pay attention to basic common sense. Here. I even took a picture for you. This is what happens when you try to pour something into a SQUARE. And not a 3D CUBE.
there can definitely be squared drinks somewhere while it is definitely most common to find a cube drink it would be unfair to deny it's existence (of the squares)
More likely a cuboid, actually, if anything.
But, also, the lip of the glass could be the only thing square, and as it goes to the bottom, it becomes cylindrical.
If you square something, you multiply it by itself. Eg 2 squared is 2x2 =4.
A square root or 'root' is what you need to multiply by itself to get the other number. Eg, the square root of 9 is 3, because 3x3 =9.
So if you 'square' a 'root' of a number, you just end up with the number itself.
TL;DR the square cancels out the root.
it took me a second. when you square a root in mathematical terms the root is gone. for instance 2 is the square root of 4. square 2 and you get 4. so hes playing off the mathematical term for squaring a number. SQUARE cup. ROOT beer
