Work Step by Step

$\sqrt{3^{41}x^{102}y^{17}}$ Factor out even powers. $\sqrt{(3)(3^{40})(x^{102})(y)(y^{16})}$ Use the Product Property of Square Roots. $\sqrt{3^{40}}\times\sqrt{3}\times\sqrt {x^{102}}\times\sqrt y\times\sqrt{y^{16}}$ Simplify square roots with variables to even powers. $3^{20}\times\sqrt3\times x^{51}\times\sqrt y \times y^8$ Use the Product Property of Square Roots. $3^{20}x^{51}y^8\times\sqrt{3y}$
