Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was reading about surds and saw this:

[PLAIN]http://www.mattvonfat.com/eq.png [Broken]

I'm probably not as familiar with simplifying fractions as I should be but I think I get that it's being split in to two fractions and that √3/2 is the same as 1/2*√3 but I don't understand what's actually being done to √3/2 to simplify it and why the original expression isn't left as it is.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Matt
