    \[\frac{ 6p+\sqrt{24p ^{3}} }{ 3p }\]

    That is how it is set up, it says I'm suppose to factor the numerator and denominator. The denominator ends up being 3 alone and the numerator looks like: 6+2√6p in the answer key, so the two p's must cancel on top and bottom, but where does the cube go?

    since \(\sqrt{24}=\sqrt{4\times 6}=\sqrt{4}\sqrt{6}=2\sqrt{6}\) and \(\sqrt{p^3}=p\sqrt{p}\) you can start with \[\frac{6p+2\sqrt{6p}}{3p}\]

    oops i meant start with \[\frac{6p+2p\sqrt{6p}}{3p}\]

    then factor out the common factor of \(p\) and cancel it with the one in the denominator
