What is the simplified form of square root 48n^9?
I think the answer is: 3n square root 4n^8.
Thank You

48 is 16 x 3
Take the square root of 16 =4
4 square root of 3
Now look at n^9
that can be written as n times n^8
n^4 comes out and leaves n under the square root sign.
your answer should be
4n^4 square root of (3n)
One way to get an better understanding of this concept is to think of square root as... "For every two things that are identical under the square root one comes out. 
√(48n^9)
= √16 *√3*√n^8 *√n
= 4n^4 √(3n) 
That would be correct. I give you my thanks
