@CrazyCountryGirl, What reasoning did you use to arrive at your answer choice?

I don't remember. I did this problem like 4 hours ago.

If you've done it once but have forgotten it, the knowledge you lost is of no use to you.

Nevermind, I just wanted you to check it. I don't need it taught. I have a tutor to help me with that. If you can't check it, I'll see if someone else can. I know it wasn't A or D though.

How do you know A or D is not correct?

Basically, here is what the question is asking: Which of the following is true: A) \(4 + 3 = 5\) B) \(9 + 16 = 25\) C) \(\sqrt{9} + \sqrt{16} = \sqrt{25}\) D) \(\sqrt{25} = 9 + 16\)

B is true... I already asked someone if that was it. It was my first answer, but they said it was wrong... o_o

You use this site at your own risk. The users here are all volunteers. Not everyone knows the correct process/procedures for arriving at a correct result. Also everyone makes mistakes. Never blindly accept anyone else's reasoning. This is why it is important to do things such as 1. Get a second opinion 2. If someone gives you an explanation, try to reason your way through it to find discrepancies, fallacies, illogical statements. 3. Find users who you feel are trustworthy.
