    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

    (9 + 16)^(1/2) = sqrt(25) = 5
