Answer:

#3b^2# #sqrt(a)#

Explanation:

So let start by using the known factors we have.

#sqrt(9ab^4)#

So we can take out a 3 out because 9 is a perfect square which give us:

#3# #sqrt(ab^4)#

So we cannot take out a a because it not a perfect square, it only has one. But we can take out #b^4# outside from the house which is #b^2#.

Our final answer is #3b^2# #sqrt(a)#
