    You agree that \[\LARGE \sqrt{32} = 32^{1/2}\] right?

    so that means \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = \left(32^{1/2}\right)^{1/2}\]

    Multiply the exponents and then convert back to radical form \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = 32^{1/2*1/2}\] \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = 32^{1/4}\] \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = \sqrt[4]{32}\]

    Optionally you can simplify this radical by doing this \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = \sqrt[4]{32}\] \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = \sqrt[4]{16*2}\] \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = \sqrt[4]{16}*\sqrt[4]{2}\] \[\LARGE \sqrt{\sqrt{32}} = 2*\sqrt[4]{2}\]
