Hi All,

I'm using version 4.

I wish to calculate (24+5*sq,rt.23)^2
I'm using the square root symbol from the palette.

I want to obtain (1151 + 240*sq.rt. 23)

I've tried Simplify and FullSimplify but I keep getting (24+5*sq,rt.23)^2.

What command should I use?

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes, Jim
