Solve the equation.
How do you solve a fraction?
X^2/3=1/16
Thanks

Next step:
x^2 = 3/16
Now take the square root of both sides (whatever operation you do to one side of an equation you must do to the other side as well):
√x^2 = √(3/16)
There are two possible solutions:
x =  √3/4, √3/4
Substitute both values for x in the original equation to see if it checks out. It always helps to check your work.
I hope this helps.
