1. anonymous

Is the bottom a sqrt too?

2. anonymous

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

3. anonymous

this is what it looks like

4. anonymous

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. anonymous

thats it or more to it

6. anonymous

help @tcarroll010

7. anonymous

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

8. anonymous

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

9. anonymous

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

10. anonymous

That's it.
