    Simplifying Radicals

    Hi all, just need help on how to simplify radicals. For example,

    3[square root 6] / 4 [square root 10]

    Sorry if this looks confusing, as I don't have a square root symbol on my keyboard. Step-by-step, please.

    \frac{3\sqrt{6}}{4\sqrt{10}} = \frac{3\sqrt{2}\sqrt{3}}{4\sqrt{2}\sqrt{5}} = \frac{3\sqrt{3}}{4\sqrt{5}}<br />
