    so, 60 = 2*30 now 30 is a prime number ? no. so again divide 30 by 2, what u get ?

    so, 60 = 2*2*15 now 15 is a prime number ? no. so again divide 15 by 2, can't divide.... divide 15 by 3, what u get ?

    so, 60 = 2*2*3*5 right ? (since, 5 is a prime number, we stop) are you getting all this ?

    now comes the easy part ... \[\sqrt{x.x.y}=\sqrt{x.x}\sqrt y \] so what about \[\sqrt{60}=\sqrt{2.2.3.5}=...?\]

    i meant \[\sqrt{x.x.y}=\sqrt{x.x}\sqrt y=x\sqrt y\]
