express -3 radical 48

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Now we know radical of a number means its square root, so we can say that:

-3 radical 48 means -3(48)^{1/2}

As we know that: 48=16X3

=4X4X3

=4^{2}X3

Therefore (48)^{1/2} can be simplified to:

(48)^{1/2} = 4X (3)^{1/2}

-3 radical 48 can be simplified to -3X4X (3)^{1/2 } i.e. -12radical 3

Therefore -3 radical 48 can be expressed as -12 radical 3
