Converting radicals to mixed radicals with fractions

I understand this, but I found a lot of differences between the way students were finding this out.

The question is...

2/5 [sqrt]450[/sqrt]

Can someone explain to me how to answer ends up being 6 [sqrt]2[/sqrt]

SQRT(2/9) = SQRT(2) / SQRT(9) = SQRT(2) / 3
