We want to split 128 into it's prime factors.

\(\sqrt{128}=\sqrt{2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot2}\)

 

Then we can rewrite this as:

\(=\sqrt{2\cdot2}\cdot\sqrt{2\cdot2}\cdot\sqrt{2\cdot2}\cdot\sqrt2\)

 

Now..replace each  \(\sqrt{2\cdot2}\)   with 2

\(=2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot\sqrt2\)

 

Multiply the numbers outside the radical together.

\(=8\cdot\sqrt2 \\~\\ =8\sqrt2\)
