1. alrightatmaths

Is the bottom a sqrt too?

2. alrightatmaths

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

3. algebra2sucks

this is what it looks like

4. alrightatmaths

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

5. algebra2sucks

thats it or more to it

6. algebra2sucks

help @tcarroll010

7. alrightatmaths

Multiply the fraction by root x^3 over root x^3

8. alrightatmaths

$\frac{ \sqrt{w^4}\sqrt{x^3} }{ x^3 }$

9. alrightatmaths

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

10. alrightatmaths

That's it.
