multiply that by its conjugate @pratu043 what do you get?

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

@pratu043 what do you get by multiplying that.. ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
How do you find the conjugate?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I only know how to find for binomial surds.
mathslover
  • mathslover
@pratu043 let the expression given be like this: \[\large{(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7})-(\sqrt{10})}\]
mathslover
  • mathslover
I meant to say that: a+b-c = (a+b)-(c) right?

yes

ok leave that for once... what will be the conjugate of a+b ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
a-b
mathslover
  • mathslover
right so let a = c+d and b = b now can u tell me what will be the new conjugate? : (c+d)+(b) conjugate = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
(c+d) - (b)
mathslover
  • mathslover
right so what will be the conjugate of : \[\large{(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7})-(\sqrt{10})}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1344952630671:dw| ok, I got the conjugate part.
mathslover
  • mathslover
right now : multiply this conjugate with original expression
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1344952686106:dw| right?
mathslover
  • mathslover
good so we have: \[\large{2\sqrt{14}-1}\] now:(√2 + √7 - √10)[(√2 + √7 + √10) (2√14 + 1)] do this
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1344952926110:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
But why should we do this?
mathslover
  • mathslover
it is a step towards the answer
mathslover
  • mathslover
also try to check that out pratu that u did: can that be more simplified?
mathslover
  • mathslover
@pratu043 you there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry yes i am there.
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you mean that we should try and convert the irrationals in that expression to mixed surds?
mathslover
  • mathslover
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think I can handle it on my own now, thanks!!
mathslover
  • mathslover
(√2 + √7 - √10)[(√2 + √7 + √10) (2√14 + 1)] \[\large{(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7}-\sqrt{10})(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{7}+\sqrt{10})(2\sqrt{14}+1)}\] \[\large{(9+2\sqrt{14}-10)(2\sqrt{14}+1)=(2\sqrt{14}-1)(2\sqrt{14}+1)=56-1=55}\]
