multiply top and bottom by (sqrt 2 -4) to get rid of the sqrt on the bottom because remember:

(a-b)(a+b) = a^2 - b^2

thereby squaring any square roots that might have been in b

8/(sqrt 2 + 4) * (sqrt 2-4)/(sqrt 2-4)

= 8 (sqrt 2 - 4) / [ (sqrt 2)^2 - 16 ]

= (8 sqrt 2 - 32) / [2-16]

= (8 sqrt 2 - 32) / -14

= (16 - 4 sqrt 2 / 7

**Damon**, Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 7:45pmBy the way your math book did the

(a-b)(a+b) by FOIL

a^2 + ab -ab - b^2 which is a^2-b^2

but I know and you should know that

(a-b)(a+b) = a^2 - b^2

without going through the FOIL
