# How do you simplify square root of 25(A+2)to the 2nd power?

Jun 2, 2018

$\sqrt{25 {\left(A + 2\right)}^{2}} = \pm 5 \left(A + 2\right)$

#### Explanation:

Your question is somewhat ambiguous as it is not clear whether "to the 2nd power" refers to $\left(A + 2\right)$ or the entire term.

I will assume we are looking for: $\sqrt{25 {\left(A + 2\right)}^{2}}$

Expression $= \sqrt{25 {\left(A + 2\right)}^{2}}$

$= \sqrt{25} \cdot \sqrt{{\left(A + 2\right)}^{2}}$

$= \pm 5 \left(A + 2\right)$
