    \(\sqrt{-3}=\sqrt{3}i\)

    so \[-\sqrt{3}\times \sqrt{3}i=-3i\]

    if you have a negative number inside the radical, then it comes outside as \(i\)

    yeah because a negative isnt possible in square root

    for example \(\sqrt{-25}=\sqrt{25}i=5i\) and \[\sqrt{-3}=\sqrt{3}i\]

    yes, that would be the first step

    the second step would be to actually multiply and get \[5i\times 3i=15i^2=15\times (-1)=-15\]

    yes, because \(i=\sqrt{-1}\) and so \(i^2=-1\)

    oh that makes sense and im sorry i just have two more if u could please check them as well (6i)2 which would be 36i right but if i multiplied 36 by -1 then i get -36 then theres (2+3)(2-3i) im not sure about this one like is it going to be like 5*2-3(-1) ?
