# How do you simplify sqrt(17)*sqrt(2b)?

$\sqrt{\textcolor{red}{a}} \cdot \sqrt{\textcolor{b l u e}{b}} = \sqrt{\textcolor{red}{a} \cdot \textcolor{b l u e}{b}}$
$\sqrt{\textcolor{red}{17}} \cdot \sqrt{\textcolor{b l u e}{2 b}} = \sqrt{\textcolor{red}{17} \cdot \textcolor{b l u e}{2 b}} = \sqrt{34 b}$
