    \[\sqrt{-9} = \sqrt{-1} * \sqrt{9}\] \[\sqrt{9} = 3\]

    \[-\sqrt{9}=(-1)*\sqrt{9}=(-1)*3=-3 and \it is also equal \to (-1)*(-3)=3\]

    most of the time people just want the postive number if you take the squareroot - so if only one answer is correct I would take -3

    If it's \[-\sqrt{9} \] then it's like saying \[-1 \times \sqrt{9}\]

    \[\sqrt{9} = 3 \]3 * -1 = negative 3
