    @dido525 Oh wow!! Thank you. I can't believe I'm doing these somewhat right lol. Would it be \[3i \sqrt{3}\] ?? And there was also a problem that was \[\sqrt{-72}\] I got: \[2i \sqrt{3}\]

    The last one should be 9i.

    is that a 4 and 18? I would think to factor them to 2 x 2 and 9 x 2 maybe

    Getting the i right, but need to look at \[\sqrt{81} and \sqrt{16}\]

    @chaguanas Would I do \[3i \sqrt{3}\] for -81? and 4i or \[4i \sqrt{4}\] for -16?

    @Zarkon Ohh so that's how you do it. You wouldn't factor the 9 out to a 3?

    for any \(a>0\) \[\sqrt{-a^2}=a\cdot i\] so \[\sqrt{-81}=\sqrt{-9^2}=9i\]

    @Zarkon Oh alright! I'm not sure if my teacher taught me about the a>0 thing but that makes sense. Thank you very much :) Explained a lot.
