The answer is 5. 3^2=9 + 4^2=16, 9+16=25 25^1/2 is the same as sqrt 25 which equals 5.

A value squared can be re written.

For instance 3^2 = 3*3

4^2=4*4

the problem is asking you to find the square root of the sum of what's in parenthesis

(3*3+4*4)=25

Square root of 25 is 5

BUT REMEMBER WHEN YOU TAKE THE SQUARE ROOT OF A NUMBER YOUR ANSWER IS + or - The square root

THE FINAL ANSWER IS +or-5
