# Question #46f3e

##### 1 Answer

Let us assume a square root....

#### Explanation:

Assuming that we are simplifying a square root (rather than a cube root, fourth root, or other radical), we are looking for perfect squares that divide 108. It helps to factor 108 completely into primes.

FINALLY, we have:

Since we are searching for perfect squares, any pair of identical factors IS a perfect square. Perfect squares extract as a single factor of their type.

The remaining

So

Multiply the factors that are outside.
