How would I solve this equation?

sqrt2 over sqrt10 (sqrt2/sqrt10)

would I multiply the radical by the sqrt ten to simplify?

    You can pull the radical out and simplify to:

    sqrt (2/10)

    which does indeed reduce to sqrt (1/5)

    You cannot multiply the radical by sqrt 10 to simplify because there is no other side of the equation to also multiply by that number.

    Hope I helped.

    sqrt(1/5) = sqrt5/5
