Answer:

#(3sqrt(3))/4#

Explanation:

Use the quotient property of radicals to rewrite your expression as

#sqrt(27/16) = sqrt(27)/sqrt(16) = sqrt(27)/4#

Since #27# is not a perfect square, you're going to have to see if you can write it as a product of a perfect square and another number

#27 = 9 * 3 = 3^2 * 3#

This means that your expression will be

#sqrt(3^2 * 3)/4 = (sqrt(3^2) * sqrt(3))/4 = color(green)((3 sqrt(3))/4)#
