sqrt(16/9) = sqrt(16) / sqrt(9) = 4/3 .

That's the square root of positive 16/9. There is no square root of a negative number, unless

you want to get into what's called "imaginary" numbers in math and engineering.

If you want the square root of -(16/9), or (-16)/9, or 16/(-9), in each case it's (4/3)i .

That little ' i ' is the unit imaginary number, defined as the square root of (-1).

That's probably as far into it as we ought to go for right now.

-16 i think

The square root of the fraction 16 over 169 is 4 over 13.

it is impossible to get the square root of a negative, since the definition of a square root is something times itself. example: the square root of 16 is 4 because 4 x 4 = 16. and a negative times a negative is a positive, so the square root of a negative is impossible. however, you can do the square root of 121 (which is 11) and make the 11 a negative. 11 x 11 = 121 and -11 x -11 = 121 but you could make 11 negative after the fact, if that is what you wanted to do.

4 over square root of 16 simplifies to 1 !

Positive or negative 4i

There is no square root of negative 8, negative numbers can never be square rooted since no two of the same number can go into a negative number, for example 16's square root is 4 and -4 since 4x4=16 and -4x-4=16, but -16 doesn't have a square root since -4 just turns into a positive when multiplied to itself.
