$$4\sqrt 3$$

Work Step by Step

We can use the product rule for square roots to rewrite the radicand as the product of a perfect square factor and another factor: $$\sqrt 48 = \sqrt (16 \times 3)$$ Because $16$ is a perfect square factor, we can take the square root of $16$, which is $4$: $$4\sqrt 3$$
