Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can convert root to an exponent form \[\huge\rm \sqrt[n]{x^m} =x^\frac{ m }{ n }\] index will become the denominator of the fraction so you can convert square root to 1/2 exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no 4 isn't under the square root \[\huge\rm \sqrt{x} \times 4\sqrt{x}\] this is ur question so convert sqrt{x} to exponent form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right \[\huge\rm x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \times 4x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\] now apply the exponent rule when we multiply same bases we should `add` exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m+n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm \[\huge\rm 4x^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }}\] 1/2+1/2= ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right we should find the common denominator \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }=\frac{ 1+1 }{ 2 }\] denominator are the same so just ~ADD~ the number in the numerator
