First write down the problem

 

\(3\sqrt{8}\)

 

Then you have to simplify 8 as far as you can. Since 2 and 4 multiplied is 8, we'll use those two numbers.

 

\(3\sqrt{8}\)

     ^

   2  4

 

Then you have to simplify 4

 

\(3\sqrt{8}\)

     ^

   2  4

       ^

     2  2

 

Then you have to write it from least to greatest.

 

2,2,2

 

Since you have three 2, you will combined to and take them out of the square root.

 

\(2*3\sqrt{2}\)

 

Then you just simplify and solve.

If you meant  sqrt (3/8) = sqrt3/sqrt8 = sqrt3/sqrt(4 x 2) = sqrt3/ (2*sqrt2)

 

sqrt(3) / 2 sqrt(2)   multiply by  sqrt2/sqrt2

sqrt(6)/4
