3*sqrt(6/3) is the same thing as saying 3*sqrt(2)

Your problem:

3√(6/3) is the same as 3√6/√3

To rationalize the denominator, multiply both the top and bottom by √3/√3 which is the same as multiplying by 1.

Now we have:

3√6/√3 * √3/√3 = 3√18/√9

√18 can be simplified to √(9*2) = 3√2

√9 = 3

Putting it together:

3*3√2/ 3

Cancel out 3 in both the top and bottom.

You are left with 3√2

I hope this will help.

is that not what i just said without all the words?

Yes, you are correct! Since the question asked to use the quotient property, I just expanded on the problem in a different way.
