    now use the rule \[\sqrt{\frac{ m }{ n }}=\frac{ \sqrt{m} }{ \sqrt{n} }\]

    What I find helpful when I do square roots is to write the prime factors and group up pairs. \[\frac{16}{36}=\frac{2*2*2*2}{2*2*3*3}=\]

    4 will not equally divide by 9 so that is it simplified

    then it cannot be squared. I am not sure of the rule you are talking about.

    \[\sqrt{\frac{ 16 }{ 36 }}=\sqrt{\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }}=\frac{ \sqrt{4} }{ \sqrt{9} }\]
