    \[\frac{\sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{2}} + \frac{3}{\sqrt{3}} + \frac{\sqrt{15}}{\sqrt{5}} +\frac{\sqrt{18}}{\sqrt{6}}\]

    Remember one thing: \[\large \color{green}{\frac{\sqrt{x}}{\sqrt{y}} = \sqrt{\frac{x}{y}}}\]

    So for first term apply this formula... and tell me what do you get..??

    @mathslover will suggest you to take the rationalization process I guess..

    \[\large{\frac{\sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{2}}=\sqrt{\frac{6}{2}}}\] \[\large{\sqrt{6}=\sqrt{3}}\] \[\large{\frac{3}{\sqrt{3}}}\]Now rationalizing the above expression

    sorry i meant : \(\frac{\sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{2}}=\sqrt{3}\)

    yes there are three terms like that and the other one 3/root 3

    root 3 + root 3 + root 3 + 3/ root 3

    Take the LCD..

    then it becomes 3 root 3 + 3/root 3

    LCD = root(3)

    we have to rationalize later :)

    Take the LCM and then we will do rationalization..

    Now rationalizing \(\huge{\frac{3}{\sqrt{3}}}\) = \(\huge{\frac{3*\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{3}*\sqrt{3}}}\) \[\huge{\frac{\sqrt{3}\cancel{3}^1}{\cancel{3}^1}}\] \[\huge{\sqrt{3}}\]

    Or if you take rationalization process first then you need not to take LCD..
