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

    i mean you can technically estimate it by finding the closest roots

    @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 \[\sqrt 9 < \sqrt 13 < \sqrt 16\] \[3<\sqrt 13 <4\]

    Yeah, that's a good way to get a quick mental estimate. I doubt that's what @ihatealgebrasomuch is asking for though.

    ;-) I happen to be one of those teachers who doesn't allow calculators, that's why I said the expression is already in simplest form.
