Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Combine the square roots so the entire thing is under one big radical. Then simplify what is inside of it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Close, but you need to keep it as a division problem. Take the square root of the entire fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i ment 125 not 150

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah cause 5^3 is 125 so would it be..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in the same manner \(\large 5\sqrt{5x^{14}.x}=5\sqrt{x^{14}}\sqrt{5x}=5x^7\sqrt{5x}\)
