A) 4y\(\sqrt{3y}\)

B) 3y\(\sqrt{4y}\)

C) 2\(\sqrt{12y}\)

D) 3\(\sqrt{8y}\)

E) 16y\(\sqrt{3y}\)


\(\sqrt{48y^3}\)
=\(\sqrt{48}*\sqrt{y^3}\)
=\(\sqrt{48}*(y^3)^{\frac{1}{2}}\)
=\(\sqrt{48}*y^{\frac{3}{2}}\)
=\(4\sqrt{3}*y^{(1+\frac{1}{2})}\)
=\(4\sqrt{3}*y*y^{\frac{1}{2}}\)
=\(4\sqrt{3}*y*\sqrt{y}\)
=\(4y*\sqrt{3}*\sqrt{y}\)
=\(4y\sqrt{3y}\)

Ans. (A)

D) 3\(\sqrt{8y}\)

E) 16y\(\sqrt{3y}\)

\(\sqrt{48y^3}=\sqrt{(4*4)*3*(y*y)*y}\)
-- \(\sqrt{4*4}=4\)
-- \(\sqrt{y*y}=y\)
-- \(\sqrt{3*y}\) cannot be simplified. Those two terms remain underneath the radical.

\(\sqrt{48y^3}=4*y*\sqrt{3*y}=4y\sqrt{3y}\)

Answer A

OA -A
on splitting the number inside the square into perfect square we get 4y out of square and 3y inside the root
