    Combine the square roots so the entire thing is under one big radical. Then simplify what is inside of it.

    Close, but you need to keep it as a division problem. Take the square root of the entire fraction.

    i ment 125 not 150

    We can simplify it one step further. 125 = 25 * 5 Thus the square root of (125 x^15) is the same as sqrt(25 * 5 * x^15) = 5 * sqrt(5 x^15). See why?

    yeah cause 5^3 is 125 so would it be..

    in the same manner \(\large 5\sqrt{5x^{14}.x}=5\sqrt{x^{14}}\sqrt{5x}=5x^7\sqrt{5x}\)

    What hartnn provided is the simplest (most simplified) version
