Thank you for your answer but I was thinking that the answer will be √9.5/12 then 3√5/12 and I do not know what to do with the denominator "12".

Or could be 3√5/4*3 = 6√5.

I evaluated it according to the way you typed it.

It seems you are taking it as

√(45/144)

which would be √45/√144 = 3√5/12 = √5/4

Can you see why brackets would be essential for that interpretation?
