Answer:

#15sqrt(15)#

Explanation:

Each of the numbers in the problem are being multiplied. The order of items multiplied can be rearranged as follows:

#5sqrt(5) # # 3sqrt(3) = 5(3) sqrt(5) sqrt(3) = 15 sqrt(5) sqrt(3)#

Radicals can be combined if they are the same type (e.g. both square roots): #15 sqrt(5 (3)) = 15sqrt(15) #
