#### Answer

$2\sqrt{2}/7$

#### Work Step by Step

When taking a square root of a fraction, we take the square root of the numerator (top of the fraction) and denominator (bottom of the fraction) separately. The square root of 49 is 7, and there is no integer square root of 8, giving us the expression of $\sqrt{8}/7$. However, we know that 4, which is a perfect square, is a factor of 8. Thus, we can simplify: $\sqrt{4}\sqrt{2}/7=2\sqrt{2}/7$
