Algebra Help Radical notation

posted by .

My problem is:

4 sqrt 81
I know the answer is 3, but I do not know how they got it.

    write that as 81^(.25) which is (81^.5)^.5

    that is
    sqrt ( sqrt 81 )
    81 is nine times nine
    so
    sqrt ( sqrt 81 ) = sqrt (9)
    but 9=3*3 so
    sqrt (9) = 3
