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

    @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

    then it becomes 3 root 3 + 3/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..
