Rationalize each denominator.

6 + square root of 2

____________________________

square root of 3

PLZ HELP..dont kno how to do this question.plz explain..thanks

You have

(6 + sqrt(2))/sqrt(3)

multiply that by sqrt(3)/sqrt(3) to

get

[(6 + sqrt(2))*sqrt(3)]/3 and simplify

To rationalize a denominator, just multiply the numerator and denominator by the root of the number in the denominator. In this problem, multiply both numerator and denominator by (sq rt 3)/(sq rt 3), then simplify if possible.
