## anonymous 5 years ago What is the quivalent of √3 +5 /√3 -5

1. anonymous

is it $\frac{\sqrt{3}+5}{\sqrt{3}-5}$?

2. anonymous

no,i think you have to multiply the whole thing by √3 +5 but I don't remember how

3. anonymous

no i meant was that the question?

4. anonymous

oh yeah, sorry

5. anonymous

if so multiply numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator

6. anonymous

$\frac{\sqrt{3}+5}{\sqrt{3}-5}\times \frac{\sqrt{3}+5}{\sqrt{3}+5}$

7. anonymous

the denominator will be $3-25=-22$

8. anonymous

the numerator will be $3+25+10\sqrt{3}$

9. anonymous

is the final, simplified answer 14 + 5√3 / -11 ?

10. anonymous

yes!

11. anonymous
