    split 128 in such a way that you can get a complete square like in last problem 9 was square of 3 thats why 63=9*7

    \[\sqrt{128x^{5}y^2}\] 128 can be divided as 2*64 or \[2*8^{2}\] and x^5 as \[(x^2)^2*x\]

    So\[\sqrt{2*8^2*(x^2)^2*x*y^2}\]

    you take complete square terms outside like 64 = 8^2 when you take it out of root you get 8

    when you take y^2 out of root you get y

    and when you take x^4 out of root you get x^2

    we have a relation \[\sqrt{a*b*c} = \sqrt{a}*\sqrt{b}*\sqrt{c}\]

    \[\sqrt{2*8^2*(x^2)^2*x*y^2}\] = \[\sqrt{2}*\sqrt{8^2}*\sqrt{(x^2)^2}*\sqrt{x}*\sqrt{y^2}\]

    that gives u \[\sqrt{2}*8*x^2*\sqrt{x}*y\]
