# How do you simplify #3/sqrt3#?

##### 1 Answer

Since **rationalization.** Rationalization is when you must multiply the whole fraction by another fraction where the numerator and denominator are

#3/sqrt(3)color(red)(*sqrt(3)/sqrt(3))#

#=(3color(red)(*sqrt(3)))/(sqrt(3)color(red)(*sqrt(3)))#

#=(3sqrt(3))/3#

Notice how once you rationalize the fraction, the denominator is not irrational anymore. Also, keep in mind that you did not change the value of the simplified fraction. Since **equal** to
