    \[\large{(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7}-\sqrt{10})(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7}+\sqrt{10})=?}\]

    I only know how to find for binomial surds.

    @pratu043 let the expression given be like this: \[\large{(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7})-(\sqrt{10})}\]

    I meant to say that: a+b-c = (a+b)-(c) right?

    ok leave that for once... what will be the conjugate of a+b ?

    right so let a = c+d and b = b now can u tell me what will be the new conjugate? : (c+d)+(b) conjugate = ?

    right now : multiply this conjugate with original expression

    good so we have: \[\large{2\sqrt{14}-1}\] now:(√2 + √7 - √10)[(√2 + √7 + √10) (2√14 + 1)] do this

    do you mean that we should try and convert the irrationals in that expression to mixed surds?
