Homework Help: Algebra (urgent!)

Posted by Shealyn on Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 7:29pm.

I am a bit confused about conjugates in algebra. I am supposed to multiply 8/(the square root of two + 4) by the square root of 2 -4. My math book then goes on to simplify this to (8 times the square root of two minus 32) divided by (2-4 times the square root of two plus 4 times the square root of 2 minus 16). I do not see how the bottom part came to be. Could someone offer an explanation, please?
