Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0HUH? the answer is \( 2+ \sqrt{3}\) but how did they get it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First simplify the denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\sf\Large 1+ (\sqrt{3})\times 1\) Anything times 1 is 1 and when you add a negative number you are basically subtracting it. Make sure to follow PEMDAS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I need to How to simplify this? \( \frac{\sqrt{3}  1}{1+(\sqrt{3}*1} \frac{1+(\sqrt{3}*1}{1+(\sqrt{3}*1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We are getting to that, first we need to simplify the denominator :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So \[ \frac{\sqrt{3}  1}{1+(\sqrt{3}*1} \frac{1+(\sqrt{3})}{1+(\sqrt{3})} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ \frac{\sqrt{3}  1}{1+(\sqrt{3}} * \frac{1+(\sqrt{3})}{1+(\sqrt{3})} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, however: \(\sf 1+(\sqrt{3})=1\sqrt{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then we have to multiply the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of \(\sf1\sqrt{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do we use foil to times \[ (\sqrt{3}1)(1\sqrt{3}) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 2 for the numerator is this correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I fail to see how you got that... dw:1433890581827:dw
