  1. factor out perfect squares.
    #1. √250h^4k^5 = √25*10*h^4*k^4*k = √(25h^4k^4)*10k = 5h^2k^2 √10k
    #2. wrong again. You don't factor them all out
    #3. ok
    #4. ok
    #5. nope. √8*6x = √48x = 4√3x ...

  2. 1- 5h^2k^2 √10k
    2- 35y√21
    3- 2x^6 / y
    4- 15√7
    5- √6x / 3x

    I changed 1, 2, and 5. Are these right? For #2 my original answer was 5√1,029y^2 but I'm pretty sure I got it wrong.

  3. #1,2 ok
    For #5, √8 / √6x = √48x / 6x = 4√3x / 6x = 2√3x / 3x
