How do you simplify products of radicals? Please help!

asked by Grace
  1. put the products inside the radical and then extract perfect squares (if you're working with square roots)

    sqrt(30)*sqrt(6)*sqrt(10) = sqrt(30*6*10) = sqrt(2*3*5*2*3*2*5) = sqrt(2^2*3^2*5^2*2) = 2*3*5*sqrt(2) = 30sqrt(2)
