To get rid of 4th root you need three more 2s.
So we have to multiply numerator and denominator by $\sqrt[2×2×2]{}$
Answer: $\frac{\left(9\right)\left(4throot\right)\left(8\right)}{2}$
$\frac{9}{\sqrt{2}}$
$=\frac{9×\sqrt{2×2×2}}{\sqrt{2}×\sqrt{2×2×2}}$
$=\frac{9×\sqrt{2×2×2}}{\sqrt{2}×2×2×2}$
$\frac{9×\sqrt{8}}{\sqrt{{2}^{4}}}$
$\frac{9\sqrt{8}}{2}$
Answer: $\frac{9\sqrt{8}}{2}$
