It's hard to read your crazy totem pole there. \[\large\rm \frac{1}{\left(\frac{\sqrt2}{2}\right)}\]Is this what we're dealing with?

yes. :)

Recall:\[\large\rm \frac{\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)}{\left(\frac{c}{d}\right)}=\frac{a}{b}\cdot\frac{d}{c}\]Maybe you've learned it as "Keep Change Flip" or something similar.

So for your problem:\[\large\rm \frac{1}{\left(\frac{\sqrt2}{2}\right)}=1\cdot\frac{2}{\sqrt2}\]

And from there, sure you can rationalize,\[\large\rm \frac{2}{\sqrt2}\cdot\color{royalblue}{\frac{\sqrt2}{\sqrt2}}=\frac{2\sqrt2}{2}\]
