# How do find the quotient of #(-4sqrt3 )/( 3sqrt2)#?

##### 1 Answer

- Rewrite the square roots to exponents
- A little bit of algebra

.. and you will get the answer#-sqrt(8)/sqrt(3)#

#### Explanation:

Sometimes square roots can be painful to work with, so we have some rules that we can use to rewrite them. One of them is:

And this is the one we will use for this problem.

We also need to know how to deal with eventual negative exponents. Let's have an example:

In this problem, we will use this rule the other way around as well. So let's start!

To make it easier for us, we can split up the expression into parts; one for the base of 2, and one of the base of 3:

Let's tweek on the expression so we can see the exponents

Now, let's move the factors to the same place, using the formula
