Given that (sqrt{2} = 1.414), find without using tables, the value of (frac{1}{sqrt{2}})

Given that (sqrt{2} = 1.414), find without using tables, the value of (frac{1}{sqrt{2}})

  • A.
    0.141
  • B.
    0.301
  • C.
    0.667
  • D.
    0.707
Correct Answer: Option D
Explanation

(frac{1}{sqrt{2}}) = (frac{1}{sqrt{2}}) x (frac{sqrt{2}}{sqrt{2}})
= (frac{sqrt{2}}{2})
= (frac{1.414}{2})
= 0.707
