b) R.T.P.
Squaring both sides,
Multiplying both sides by 16,
Can you finish it from here?
c) seems to be missing some context... what are and ?
Also this looks like it would belong in the Mathematics subforum (i.e. the 2U one).
I'm having trouble answering these questions, especially b) and c). Any help/answers would be greatly appreciated

For part (b), literally follow the hint: after squaring both sides and simplifying, you should get
32 + 16√2 < 38 + 12√2,
which simplifies further to
√2 < 3/2,
which is the same inequality in part (a).
I can't help you with part (c), since I don't know what a and b are.

That's really helpful, thank you very much! I've taken it a bit further for the LHS, but I'm not sure what do to for the RHS. I've attached my working: IMG_6433.bmp
Subtract 2:
Multiply by -1 (which flips the inequality sign)
Which is the result in b)
