    basically you gotta factorise everything, and then take out terms out of the square root that are 'double'.

    square root means the reverse of squaring. suppose 6 squared is 36. so then square root of 36 is 6. and since squaring basically means multiplying a no. by itself, square rooting means if a no. has a single factor twice, we count it only once while square rooting. and the factors that are single, are left alone inside the root. Have you seen the movie "Harold and Kumar"? 'cause this might help..
