I don't understand the question. That expression is already in simplest form, what else do you want to do with it?

@Outkast3r09 , yes, to get a decimal approximation, a calculator is the best way. There are old iterative methods for finding square roots by hand, but why bother? ;)

square roots i mean so \[\sqrt 9 < \sqrt 13 < \sqrt 16\] \[3<\sqrt 13 <4\]
