You cannot factor negative radical numbers because the square of a number must always be positive. A negative number multiplied by a negative number produces a positive number. So, it is impossible to have a negative radical.

Why is it impossible to find the square root of a negative?

Because for a number to be a square number it must have a number which when multiplied by it self=that number. For example: 36 is a square number because 6x6=36 16 is a square number because 4x4=16 A negative number such as -16 is not a Square Number because -4x-4=16 not -16 because a negative times a negative is a positive. -4x4=-16 but these numbers aren't the same therefore -16 isn't a square number. This is why negative numbers cant be Square Numbers
