Answer:

#pm5#

Explanation:

We can rewrite #sqrt75# as #sqrt25sqrt3#. We now have:

#(sqrt25sqrt3)/sqrt3#

We can cancel out common factors in the numerator and denominator to get

#(sqrt25cancelsqrt3)/cancelsqrt3=sqrt25=pm5#

Another way to approach this is leveraging the radical law

#sqrta/sqrtb=sqrt(a/b)#. With this in mind, we can rewrite this entire expression as

#sqrt(75/3)=sqrt25=+-5#

Hope this helps!
