    \[\frac{ 2\sqrt{3} }{ \sqrt{10} }\] is this the question?

    Rationalize the denominator, by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the radical in the denominator: \[\frac{ 2\sqrt{3} *\sqrt{10}}{ \sqrt{10}*\sqrt{10} }\]

    This simplifies to: \[\frac{ 2\sqrt{30} }{ \sqrt{100} }\]

    What number can you square to give you 100? or what number can u multiply by itself to give you 100

    good so now we have:\[\frac{ 2\sqrt{30} }{ 10 }\] Can you simplify this and tell me what you got?

    2 sqrt 3 over 5?

    Nope you can only divide a radical by a radical. Therefore it is incorrect to divide 30 by 10. But you can simplify the numbers that are not radicals, by dividing 2 by 2 in the numerator and 10 by 2 in the denominator: You should get as your answer - \[\frac{ \sqrt{30} }{ 5 }\]
