OpenStudy (asnaseer):

you should make use of the fact that:\[36=6^2\]and\[16=4^2\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so the answer would be 96?

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

how did you get 96?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

the square root of 36X16

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

you can write this as:\[\sqrt{36*16}=\sqrt{36}\times\sqrt{16}\] now, what is \(\sqrt{36}\)? and what is \(\sqrt{16}\)?
