$\frac{9 \sqrt{2}}{4 \sqrt{3}} - \frac{2 \sqrt{6}}{4 \sqrt{5}}$

Explanation:

Okay this might be wrong as I have only briefly touched this topic but this is what I would do:
$\frac{3 \sqrt{9 \times 2}}{\sqrt{16 \times 3}} - \frac{2 \sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{16 \times 5}}$ Which equals
$\frac{9 \sqrt{2}}{4 \sqrt{3}} - \frac{2 \sqrt{6}}{4 \sqrt{5}}$
I hope this is right, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
