Answer:

#3*sqrtx#

Explanation:

Note that radicals can be split up as follows:

#sqrt(ab)=sqrta*sqrtb#

So,

#sqrt(3x)=sqrt3*sqrtx#

This gives us a simplified expression of

#=sqrt3*sqrtx * sqrt3#

Now, simplify the two #sqrt3# terms using the rule:

#sqrta*sqrta=a#

So, #sqrt3*sqrt3=3# and the expression equals

#=3*sqrtx#
