Sure thing!

5√3 is basically a product of two values. It's 5 times √3.

When you square a product of two values, you square both of the values. For example, $$(xy)^2$$ equals $$x^2y^2$$.

So, to square 5√3, you square the 5 and the √3.

$$(5^2)(\sqrt{3}^2)$$

$$(25)(3)$$

$$75$$

$$(ab)^n=a^n*b^n$$.

$$(5\sqrt{3})^2=5^2*(\sqrt{3})^2=25*3=75$$
