Thanks gamesmaster

\(\sqrt{x^2}=|x| \qquad not\;\;x\)

 

If this expression is real then y must be positive.   

Also if an expression is simple then the denominator should be rational. (no Square root on the bottom)

Although your teacher may not care about this.\(\)

 

\(\sqrt\frac{4x^2}{3y}\\=\frac{|2x|}{\sqrt{3y}}\\ =\frac{|2x|}{\sqrt{3y}}\times \frac{\sqrt{3y}}{\sqrt{3y}}\\ =\frac{|2x|\sqrt{3y}}{3y} \\ =\left| \frac{2x\sqrt{3y}}{3y} \right|\\~\\ = \frac{2x\sqrt{3y}}{3y} \text{ when }x\ge0\\ = \frac{-2x\sqrt{3y}}{3y} \text{ when }x<0\)
