Solution

Here is important to notice that \(V\) is the square of an integer. Which means that, for instance, \(2^2=4\), si if V is 4, then \(\sqrt{4}\) is 2

Using this fact we can evaluate each answer choice in order to get whether they are the square of an integer as well

A) 81v= \(\sqrt{81*4}\) = 9*2 =18 So A is true

B) It is in the form of \((a + b)^2\); as such we do have 5 \(\sqrt{v}\) + 1. So B is the square of an integer as well

C) Pick \(\sqrt{v}\)\(=4=2\) that is the square of an integer. Substitution: \(64+8+1=73\) which is NOT the square of an integer. So C is not true

The answer is \(A and B\)

Indicate all such numbers.

Indicate all such numbers.

A) 81v

B) 25v + 10√v + 1

C) 4v² + 4√v + 1

We're told that v is the square of an integer

Let's say v = k², where k is a positive integer

This means that √v = k

Now let's examine the answer choice....

A) 81v = (81)(k²)

= (9)(9)(k)(k)

= (9k)(9k)

= (9k)²

Since k is an integer, we can be certain that 9k is an integer

So, 81v IS the square of an integer

B) 25v + 10√v + 1 = 25k² + 10k + 1

= (5k + 1)(5k + 1)

= (5k + 1)²

Since k is an integer, we can be certain that 5k is an integer, and if 5k is an integer, we can be certain that 5k + 1

So, 25v + 10√v + 1 IS the square of an integer

C) 4v² + 4√v + 1 = 4(k²)² + 4k + 1

= 4k⁴ + 4k + 1

This expression cannot be factored into the form (some integer)²

To verify this, let's replace k with some integer and see what we get.

Let k = 2

If k = 2, then 4k⁴ + 4k + 1 = 4(2)⁴ + 4(2) + 1

= 64 + 8 + 1

= 73

Since 73 is NOT the square of an integer, we CANNOT conclude that 25v + 10√v + 1 is the square of an integer

Answer: A and B

Cheers,

Brent

Through trial and error we can solve the problem.

As V is a square number, we can put a square integer on the options.

From 1st option we get,

a) 81V . Let's take v = 4,9

we get, 324 and 729 which are the squares of 18 and 27. So A is a answer.

Similarly from option b we will find the similar answer.

So answer option A, B

The question asks what MUST be true, not what may be true. You can only use an example to eliminate choices, not to prove something MUST be true.

A and B

V being the square of an integer can be represented mathematically as

v = x^2

We look to see if the options can be put in the form of an integer squared.

A) 81v

81v = x^2 works, we can square root both sides and get

9sqrt(v) = x.

But v is the square of an integer so sqrt(v) gives you an integer. Thus x is an integer.

B) 25v + 10√v + 1

This can be factored into

( 5*sqrt(v) + 1 )^2

again v is the square of an integer so sqrt(v) gives you an integer. An integer times an integer plus an integer squared is of course an integer.

C) 4v² + 4√v + 1

This cannot be factored as the square of an integer. That should be a red flag that it indeed is not an integer.
