    Is the bottom a sqrt too?

    If so, multiply top and bottom by sqrt x^3

    Right well that is the same as \[\sqrt{w^4}/\sqrt{x^3}\] So just multiply the top and the bottom by \[\sqrt{x^3}\] giving you x^3 on the bottom and \[\sqrt{w^4}\sqrt{x}\] on the top

    \[\frac{ \sqrt{w^4}\sqrt{x^3} }{ x^3 }\]

    And sqrt of w^4 is just w^2 so \[\frac{ w^2\sqrt{x^3} }{ x^3 }\]
