#### Solution

Let us consider the following rational number:

$\frac{- 19683}{24389}$

Now,

$\sqrt{\frac{- 19683}{24389}}$

$= \frac{\sqrt{- 19683}}{\sqrt{24389}}$ ( ∵ $\sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} = \frac{\sqrt{a}}{\sqrt{b}}$ )

$= \frac{- \sqrt{19683}}{\sqrt{24389}}$ ( ∵ $\sqrt{- a} = - \sqrt{a}$ )

Cube root by factors:
On factorising 19683 into prime factors, we get:

$19683 = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3$

On grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get:

$19683 = \left\{ 3 \times 3 \times 3 \right\} \times \left\{ 3 \times 3 \times 3 \right\} \times \left\{ 3 \times 3 \times 3 \right\}$

Now, taking one factor from each triple, we get:

$\sqrt{19683} = 3 \times 3 \times 3 = 27$

Also
On factorising 24389 into prime factors, we get:

$24389 = 29 \times 29 \times 29$

On grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get:

$24389 = \left\{ 29 \times 29 \times 29 \right\}$

Now, taking one factor from each triple, we get:

$\sqrt{24389} = 29$

Now
$= \frac{- \sqrt{19683}}{\sqrt{24389}}$
$= \frac{- 27}{29}$
