    Simple surds question I can't work out!!

    I know i'm missing something huge but help would be appreciated:

    the question is:

    4*root3-2*root2
    ----------------
    3*root2

    i factorised the top row but that didn't really help much but i think i'm on the right track.

    thanks in advance

    That's not a "question", it is an expression. What do you want to do with it?
