.. √18 / √3 = [ √18 * √3 ] / [ √3 * √3 ] = [ √(18 * 3) ] / 3 = [ √(6 * 3 * 3) ] / 3 = [ 3 √6 ] / 3 = √6

\[\Large \frac32 \sqrt2\] this is correct.

\[\frac{\sqrt{18}}{\sqrt{3}}=\sqrt{\frac{18}{3}}=\sqrt{6}\]no need for rationalizng denominator

\[\frac{3}{\sqrt{2}}=\frac{3}{\sqrt{2}}\times \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{2}}=\frac{3\sqrt{2}}{2}\]this one does require rationalizing denominator
