    \[\sqrt{3}^{3}*(9*\sqrt{x}-8/\sqrt{x})\]

    3x^(3/2)(9 sqrt of x - 8/ sq rt of x)? is the prob like this? 3x^(3/2) * (9 sqrt of x - 8) 3x^(3/2) * (9 sqrt of x - 8) = -------------------------= ---------------------- ( sq rt of x) x^1/2 3(9)x^(3/2) * ( x - 8)^1/2 = -------------------- x^1/2 = 27x * ( x - 8)^1/2

    the 3x raised to the 3/2 is one part while 9 sqrt of x -(8/ sq rt of x) is all in one part.

    I was trying to get rid of the radical beneath 8 and ended up with 8 sqrt of x all over x

    look at my solution that 9 and 3 was multiplied and hence 9(3) (x^3/2 )(x^-1/2)=27x

    oh! do you also multiply with the 8?

    my solution was based on assumtion that 9 sqrt of x - 8 that you mean it is 9 (x-8)^1/2

    no, the 8 is the numerator over the denominator sq rt of x

    yes i know that,,, the denominator was taken care of the numerator x^3/2

    3(9)(x^3/2 )(x^-1/2)=27x

    that one is separate from the 9 multiplied by the sq rt of x. there are two square roots of x in this equation. one multiplied by the 9 and the one divided by the 8 which is why I assumed you multiplied the 3 with the 8 as well?

    to get 24x right?

    3(9)x^(3/2) ------------- = 27 (x^3/2)(x^-1/2) =27x^2/2 = 27x x^1/2 then you multipled that to sqrt(x-8)
