1. anonymous

treat each piece separately square root of 25? square root of 36? and then put then back over each other.

Is it 5/6

3. anonymous

$\sqrt{25}/\sqrt{36}$ The non-negative (positive) square root of a number is called its Principal Square Root.

4. anonymous

Positive or negative? or both ?

5. anonymous

technically it can be both.

6. anonymous

normally you would answer with the principal root though which is positive.
