If you need to siplify that radical, you should try to put all the numbers as product of prime factors.
922 = 2*461
2 and 461 are prime numbers. Then the transformation of the square root is √(922) = √(2*461) = (√2)(√461)
So you can use that in any expression to try to simpliy with other numbers whose prime factors include 2 and 461.
