    Hi Aarxn:

    Your post reads as follows:

    " is the problem. do I get with 6a for the answer? "

    But the only "problem" I can see is that you have not defined the nature of your problem. There is no equation to solve, just a simple expression which, at present, sits upon my PC screen without as much as a note from home that would offer some context to an otherwise meaningless string of terms.

    Regards,

    Rich B.

    If you are trying to simplify a+5\sqrt{a^2 - a - 30} , then no.
    a + 5 \sqrt{(a-6)(a+5)} is the best you can do.
