1. 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 $\sqrt{2 \times 2 \times 2\times 3} = 2\sqrt{6}$
