    As a start change it to exponent form using : \[\large \sqrt[n]{m}= m^{\frac{1}{n}}\]

    \((\sqrt{6}\sqrt{6})(\sqrt{6}\sqrt{6})=6*6\) Go with @ganeshie8 's idea to see how you can get there without knowing..

    Yeah, but what is the strategy if we do not know what we are looking for ? @ganeshie8

    i worked it out on my calc and found that it was square root 6. for some reason i was looking for one number that can be multiplied by 4 times to get to 36 which is not the case in scenario
