Work Step by Step

Using $\sqrt{x}\cdot\sqrt{y}=\sqrt{xy}$ or the product rule of radicals, the given expression, $ \sqrt[4]{4}\cdot\sqrt[4]{8} ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \sqrt[4]{4(8)} \\\\= \sqrt[4]{32} \\\\= \sqrt[4]{16\cdot2} \\\\= \sqrt[4]{(2)^2\cdot2} \\\\= 2\sqrt[4]{2} .\end{array}
