Example 2
Simplify:
Solution
Use the Multiplication Property of Square Roots or Cube Roots to rewrite
each expression. Then simplify the result.
a. 



Write the product as a single radical.



Multiply the numbers under the radical symbol.



Simplify the radical. 
= 9 
b. 



Write the product as a single radical.



Multiply the numbers under the radical symbol.



Simplify the radical. 
= 5
