Can someone please help me with simplifying radicals?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

like the square root of 96....i think its 4 square roots of 6 but im not sure if i did it right

OpenStudy (anonymous):

That's what I got.

OpenStudy (hunus):

That's correct

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok well i have another questions...its the same topic but a different format....its a tiny 3 square root of 32 and i dont know how to do that

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (hunus):

That is the cube root of 32. It's asking, what times itself three times is 32

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but nothing that i have been able to come up with can do that....

OpenStudy (hunus):

\[\Large \sqrt[3]{32}= \sqrt[3]{2^5}\] any idea what to do from here?

OpenStudy (hunus):

2^5 can also be represented as 2^3 * 2^2

OpenStudy (anonymous):

im so confused right now....

OpenStudy (hunus):

2^5 is 32 \[\Large \sqrt[3]{32}=\sqrt[3]{2^5}=\sqrt[3]{2^3*2^2}=\sqrt[3]{2^3}*\sqrt[3]{2^2}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so is the last part the answer or is there something else to simplify

OpenStudy (raden):

use the property : |dw:1369497936472:dw|
