The first step of simplifying a quotient with negative roots in the denominator is to simplify the denominator into "ai root b" form. From there, multiply top and bottom of the fraction by " i root b" so that the product of the i's is negative one, and the product of the roots will be just an integer. There are other ways to arrive at the correct answer, but this method will give you the smallest numbers to work with.
