Checking square roots, we see that 62
= 36 and 72
Our answer is not an integer, so we try simplify it into the product of an integer and a radical. We do this by listing each product combo of 40 checking for integer square root values below:
From that list, the highest factor that has an integer square root is 4.
Therefore, we use the product combo √40
Evaluating square roots, we see that √4
= 2 Simplifying our product of radicals, we get our answer:
Therefore, we can factor out 2 from the radical, and leave 10 under the radical
We can factor out the following portion using the highest even powers of variables:
= x4 ÷ 2
y8 ÷ 2
Our leftover piece under the radical becomes 2√10
Our final answer is the factored out piece and the expression under the radical2x2y4√10
