sqrt(45)+ sqrt(20)+ sqrt(5)sqrt(125)=??
I came up with 6sqrt5 I know it's wrong. I think I messed up the breakdown of the sqrt of 125

sqrt(125) = sqrt (5*25) = 5 sqrt(5)

sqrt(9*5) + sqrt(4*5) + sqrt5  sqrt(25*5)
= (3 +2 +1 5)sqrt5 = sqrt5

So is the answer 6sqrt(5)?? Thank you

sqrt (9*5)+sqrt(4*5)+sqrt(5) 5 sqrt(5)
3 sqrt(5) +2 sqrt (5) + 1 sqrt(5)  5 sqrt (5)
that is
1 sqrt(5)
