Hey can you help with this one: express in simplest form: 3/ the square root of 3a^2b.
In other words, 3 is the numerator
and the denominator is the square root of 3a^2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't figure out how to get there. I thought maybe to multiply top and bottom of fraction by square root of 3a^2b. Does that sound right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then I end up with 3*sq rt of 3a^2b on the top and 3a^2b in the denominator. but then what do I do next??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 3s will cancel and your left with sqrt of 3a^2b / a^2 b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh really? someone else gave me the answer sq rt 3 * a^b not sure how they got it. It was inik

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you cant just cancel out the denominator like that because because the numerator is under a sq rt

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so the numerator must stay as is? And so the problem cannot be simplified any further?
