    well, before you actually do the square root of the answer, it would just be \[\sqrt{34}\] right?

    well, that's simplest radical form because 34's only factors are 1, 2, 17, 34. and none of these are numbers that you can find the square root of that is a whole number so \[\sqrt{34}\] would be in simplest radical form. understand?
