\sqrt{\frac{9x^7}{16y^8}}

$

The solution which I thought would be right is:

$\displaystyle

\frac{3x^6\sqrt{x}}{4y^7\sqrt{y}}

$

Using Mathway.com, however, it's telling me that the answer is:

$\displaystyle

\frac{3x^2\sqrt{x}}{4y^4}

$

I would greatly appreciate if someone could explain how I got the wrong answer so I may learn from my mistakes. :] Thank you all very much.
