Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you sure you're looking at the right problem? because you're not gonna be able to get rid of the x^2 on the bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay for that you do the same thing as above. break the 8 up into 4 * 2 and break the 6 up into 3 * 2 . now you have :\[{\sqrt{4}\sqrt{2}} \over \sqrt{2}\sqrt{3}\] now just divide the sqrt(2) out
