$t+5$
$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Use the properties of radicals to simplify the given expression, $\sqrt{(t+5)^2} .$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Using the properties of radicals, the expression above simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \sqrt{(t+5)^2} \\\\= t+5 .\end{array} Note that it is assumed that radicands were not formed by raising negative numbers to an even power.
