Simplifying a product of radical expressions: Univariate
I'm trying to simplify this problem on the HP Prime in the CAS mode I type this into the calculator: https://prnt.sc/jtvk4g and the calculator gives me this result: The answer I'm looking for is this: I know these two expressions are equivalent, but one is more simplified than the other. The simplified version I'm looking for removes the unnecessary radical symbol that contains just the "y" by itself and instead put under the radical with the "2". Is there any way I can make the Prime do this?
