    so with radicals you can simplify each one by splitting them into smaller radicals

    \[\sqrt{18}=\sqrt{9}\sqrt{2}=3\sqrt{2}\]

    like the square root of 18, is a decimal so you break it down and use a number that equals to 18 like 9x2 and since its still big you can simplify 9x3? @Calle87

    because i saw the second one say 3y sqrt 4y and i thought it was the first one because it said 3 sqrt 2 because 4's sqrt is 2.
