 Question 144947This question is from textbook Toby Slater beginning Algebra : I have problem finding the square please help? Simplify, Assume all variables represent positive numbers. problem #5 square root radical of 18x^2 y^3 thank you This question is from textbook Toby Slater beginning Algebra Answer by nerdybill(6960)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Your problem: sqrt(18x^2 y^3) Start by "factoring" terms inside the radical. For example, let's expand the x's and the y's: sqrt(18xxyyy) When you see a "pair" pull it out of the radial: xy[sqrt(18y)] Now, expanding the 18: xy[sqrt(2*3*3*y)] Pulling out the pair of 3: 3xy[sqrt(2y)] Does that make sense?
