The dimensions of a rectangular box are sqrt{2}, sqrt{3} and 4(sqrt{6}). Find volume in simplest radical form. I found the volume to be 24 but is 24 in simplest radical form?

Yes it is, because: = sqrt{2} * sqrt{3} * 4(sqrt{6}) = 4(sqrt{36}) Then the simpler form is 4(6), because you're reducing just like you would a fraction, such as the simplest form of 81/3 being 27, or 3^3. So, 24 would be the simplest form.
