## anonymous 3 years ago simplify the equation 2/2+√3

1. Jusaquikie

multiply top and bottom by $2-\sqrt{3}$ which is called the conjagate

2. Jusaquikie

that will remove your radical from the denomonator and make life easier

@evy15 this process is known as rationalization:)

4. anonymous

ok. working it out and will post my answer in a bit

5. Jusaquikie

$\frac{ 2 }{2+\sqrt{3} }\times \frac{ 2-\sqrt{3} }{2-\sqrt{3} }$

6. Jusaquikie

$\frac{ 2(2-\sqrt{3}) }{( 2+\sqrt{3})(2-\sqrt{3}) } = \frac{ 4-2\sqrt{3} }{ 4-3} = 4-2\sqrt{3}$

yeah this is what I got, thank u so much

8. Jusaquikie

np good luck with the rest of your homework.
