Simplify ͙36. Note that 72 must be written as the product of a perfect square and a factor that does not contain a perfect square. Therefore, it would not be correct to rewrite ͙72 as ͙9 и 8 and simplify the expression as shown at the right. Although 9 is a perfectsquare factor of 72, 8 has a perfect square factor (8 4 и 2). Therefore, ͙8 is not in simplest form. Remember to find the largest perfect-square factor of the radicand.
