## bmxrider 2 years ago 3sqrtx^3 / 5sqrtx^2 I am really confussed.

$\frac{ 3\sqrt{x^{3}} }{ 5\sqrt{x^{2}} }$ is this what the question looks like ?

2. bmxrider

yes.

and you want to simplify it ?

4. bmxrider

yes that is correct.

$\frac{ 3 }{ 5 } \sqrt{\frac{ x^{3} }{ x^{2} }} = \frac{ 3 }{ 5 } \sqrt{x^{3}x^{-2}}$ I hope you can continue from here.

6. bmxrider

yes I think I can. Thank you very much. I was not sure were to start.

8. bmxrider

3/5 sqrt x3-2 = 3/5 sqrt x????

It should. As long as you have sqrt(x) in the numerator, like $\frac{ 3\sqrt{x} }{ 5 }$I think you should be fine. Just as a cautionary note, i'm prone to make stupid mistakes ("It's just simple maths, right?") so I might be wrong somehow, although everything I know points otherwise.
