How do you simplify sqrt(10)?

          %sqrt(10)% is already in simplest form.                                     <h4 class=answerHeader>Explanation:</h4>                                      The prime factorisation of <mathjax>%10%</mathjax> is:<mathjax>%10 = 2 * 5%</mathjax>Since no factor is repeated, the square root cannot be simplified. It is an irrational number a little larger than <mathjax>%3 = sqrt(9)%</mathjax>.
