[(root2)+(root1/2)]^2 apparently = 4.5???

the square cancels out with the roots so

it should be (2+1/2) = 3/2

weeeeird

im some helps me ill give 5 stars

Nothing cancels out

(sqrt2 + sqrt1/2)^2 =

2 + 2 sqrt2 sqrt1/2 + 1/2

2.5 + 2(sqrt(2 x 1/2)

2.5 + 2 sqrt 1

2.5 + 2 = 4.5

5 stars .. how can I say not to that :))

$$[(\sqrt2)+\sqrt{1/2}]^2\\ =\left[\sqrt2+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\right]^2\\ =\left[\sqrt2+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\right]\left[\sqrt2+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\right]\\ =(\sqrt2)^2\;\;+\;\;2*\sqrt2*\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\;\;+\;\;(\frac{1}{\sqrt2})^2\\ =2\;\;+\;\;2\;\;+\;\;\frac{1}{2}\\ =4\frac{1}{2}$$
