Work Step by Step

Using the properties of radicals, the given expression, $ \dfrac{4\sqrt{6}}{3\sqrt{12}} ,$ simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \dfrac{4}{3}\sqrt{\dfrac{6}{12}} \\\\= \dfrac{4}{3}\sqrt{\dfrac{\cancel{6}}{\cancel{6}(2)}} \\\\= \dfrac{4}{3}\sqrt{\dfrac{1}{2}} \\\\= \dfrac{4}{3}\sqrt{\dfrac{1}{2}\cdot\dfrac{2}{2}} \\\\= \dfrac{4}{3}\sqrt{\dfrac{2}{4}} \\\\= \dfrac{4}{3}\cdot\dfrac{\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{4}} \\\\= \dfrac{4}{3}\cdot\dfrac{\sqrt{2}}{2} \\\\= \dfrac{2\cdot \cancel{2}}{3}\cdot\dfrac{\sqrt{2}}{\cancel{2}} \\\\= \dfrac{2\sqrt{2}}{3} .\end{array}
