It's really not that hard. Here, I'll show you an example.

$$\sqrt{100}$$

So you take the square root of 100 and see what two number can multiply to get 100.

You can multiply 10 and 10 to get 100.

$$\sqrt{100}$$

^

10  10

Then you see what two numbers you can multiply to get 10. 2 and 5

$$\sqrt{100}$$

^

10  10

^    ^

2 5  2 5

Then you write out the number that you got from least to greastest.

2,2,5,5

Then since you have two 2's and two 5's you combine them to make them one 2 and one 5

You then take both of the numbers outside of the square root.

$$2*5\sqrt{}$$

You then multiply then numbers and get your answer, which is 10.
