Hi All,

\sqrt{(16)(20) + (8)(32)}

1. \sqrt{(16)(20) + (16)(16)}

2. \sqrt{(16)(20+16)}

At this point, why the the 16 added to the 20 still under the square root? I understand this is because the square root of (16)(16) is 16, but if that's the case should it not be outside of the square root?

I can solve past this point.

Thanks,
