    I assume that you mean

    -\dfrac{2x}3 \cdot \sqrt{\dfrac1{12x}}=-\dfrac{2x}{3 \cdot \sqrt{4 \cdot 3x}} = -\dfrac{2x}{3 \cdot2 \cdot  \sqrt{3x}}=-\dfrac{x}{3\sqrt{3} \cdot \sqrt{x}} = -\dfrac{\sqrt{x} \cdot \sqrt{x}}{3\sqrt{3} \cdot \sqrt{x}}

    -\dfrac{\sqrt{x} \cdot \sqrt{3}}{3\sqrt{3} \cdot \sqrt{3}}=-\dfrac19 \sqrt{3x}
