**A quotient with a square root in the denominator is not simplified**

A quotient with a square root in the denominator is not simplified. To simplify these expressions, multiply by a form of 1 to get a perfect-square radicand in the denominator. This is called rationalizing the denominator.

4
**Directions: Simplify the quotient.**
