Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0with \(i^2 = 1\) you can say that \(232 = i^2 \times 232\) and therefore \(\sqrt{232} = i\,\sqrt{232}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See, i is the square root of a 1 In order to remove it you just take out the negative so it would be \[i \sqrt{232}\]
