Answer:

#9+2sqrt5=13.472#

Explanation:

#9+2sqrt5#

#sqrt5# is an irrational number—it is a never-ending decimal that can't be written as a fraction. You must use a calculator to determine its value.
(It is equal to about #2.2360679774997896964091736687312762#)...

We will round it to the thousandth place.

#9+2(2.236)=9+4.472=13.472#
