I understand that the square root of (for example)j^16 is j^8. But when you have an odd squared root, like the square root of j^19, would it be j^9square root of j?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Another quick question 12 radical 36 would be 72?

Sorry, I know this is basic algebra, but I really have forgotten how to do it...
