May 2, 2016

This mixed radical is already as simplified as it gets.

#### Explanation:

This mixed radical is already as simplified as it gets. To show this, we need to factor the components into their prime factors:

$3 \cdot \sqrt{2 \cdot 13}$

There are no repeated factors in the the square root for us to remove, so the simplest form is

$3 \sqrt{26}$
