Answer & Explanation
Factor 45 into its prime factors
To simplify a square root, we extract factors which are squares, i.e., factors that are raised to an even exponent.
Factors which will be extracted are:
Factors which will remain inside the root are:
To complete this part of the simplification we take the squre root of the factors which are to be extracted. We do this by dividing their exponents by 2 :
At the end of this step the partly simplified SQRT looks like this:
