The best way to simplify these is to multiply the top and bottom by the denominator (that will get rid of the square root).

So you would do: \[\frac{3(4 + \sqrt{5})}{(4 + \sqrt{5})(4 + \sqrt{5})}\]

... Do what? The above is what you do. You have to multiply it out.

... By multiplying?

For example, \(3(4 + \sqrt{5})\) = \(3\times 4 + 3\times \sqrt{5}\).

You can leave \(3\times \sqrt{5}\) as just \(3\sqrt{5}\).

okay i only did that b/c i don't understand what your talking about !

Ok, that's fine. We'll try and fix that. In an equation like the one you posted, `simplifying' involves removing square roots from the denominator.

To do that, we have to multiply the denominator by its conjugate (the same thing, but minus the square root instead of plus the square root), which will get rid of the square root. But, if we just do that in the denominator, we've changed the value of the entire equation. So, we multiply *both* the top *and* the bottom by the same thing, which is the same thing as multiplying by 1 -- i.e., it doesn't change the overall value.

For example, if I have 3/5 and I multiply by 10/10, I have 30/50. But that's the same thing as 3/5, it's just written differently.
