Can you explain how you solved it? Please tell me you did some simplifying!

I noticed the denominators are all perfect squares and the previous numerator is divisible by the square route of the next denominator, but I don’t know what to do from there.

That is a great observation, Korbyn. You can use what you noticed to rewrite the numerators and denominators as products of those factors. Then, you can start pulling out factors to simplify. I am going to make a new video explaining this problem. For now, you can learn more about how to multiply fractions and mixed numbers (and do something called cross simplifying) in this very exciting video:
