Is it supposed to be 5 square root of (x ^7 and y^4)?

It should be 5 then you expand everything in the sqroot to be (x x x x x x x y y y y)

Then take out for every two of each letter, make it one whole one..... so you get

5 x^3 y^2 squareroot (x)

I think that's what it means....Hope it helps!

On the paper the 5 is a small five and over the sqrt root symbol and inside the square root is x^7 and y^4
