    \[\frac{3-\sqrt x}{9-x}\] factorize the denominator use \[(a+b)(a-b)=a^2-ab+ba-b^2=a^2-b^2\] cancel common factors

    yes i know that but how do you that for sqrt?

    use \(x=\sqrt x^2\)

    mmm so 3-sqet(x)=(x^2-3^9)?

    your looking at the numerator (bottom bit of the fraction) you should be looking at the denominator ( the bottom bit of the fraction) \[9-x=(\cdots)(\cdots)\]

    9-x...... sqert(3)-(x)??

    \[9-x=3^2-\sqrt x^2=(\cdots)(\cdots)\]

    not quite\[a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)\] so\[9-x=3^2-\sqrt x^2=\]

    hope its right

    \[9-x=3^2-\sqrt x^2=(3+\sqrt x)(3-\sqrt x)\]

    so\[\frac{3-\sqrt x}{9-x}=\frac{3-\sqrt x}{(3+\sqrt x)(3-{\sqrt x)}}\]\[\qquad\qquad =\frac{\cancel{3-\sqrt x}}{(3+\sqrt x)\cancel{(3-{\sqrt x)}}}\]

    I got (x+4)(x^2+4x+16)/(x+4)?

    once you have fixed the sign error, cancel the common factor
