    Surds: Which way round does a surd answer go. Read for more info

    Hi Guys,
    I am stuck deciding which way to put a surd answer.

    For Example: ("/" represents surds symbol)
    The Surd: /24
    Simplified, is it 4/6 or 6/4??
    and how can you know which way to put it?

    do you mean \sqrt{24}??
    it can be written as \sqrt{2 \times 2 \times 2\times 3} = 2\sqrt{6}
