    can you simplify the square root part? You can write 108 as prime factors

    that's an approximation. They want an exact answer. Start by finding any two numbers that multiply to 108. Like _____ times _______ = 108

    that's only 1 number. ok so 108 is even, so 2 is a factor of 108. What's 108/2 ?

    right now do the same thing to find factors of 54. 54/2 = ? |dw:1441721517994:dw|

    right and then 27 = 3*9 and 9 = 3 * 3|dw:1441721590093:dw|

    you want the square root, so circle pairs of the same number and write them outside the radical. Leave anything not paired off inside|dw:1441721711027:dw|

    0.17 repeating is the same as 17/99, so all you have left to do is cancel \[\frac{ 17 }{ 99 }(6\sqrt{3})\]
