ok so you need to multiply the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of 3-√2. Any idea as to what that is?

Okay, so from what I'm seeing, 7 as the denominator wouldn't make much sense so c and d are out correct?
anonymous

Lost it at the sqrt of 2 x sqrt of 2 for some reason!

The \[3\sqrt{2}\] should cancel out

  • anonymous
yes they do cancel out, and that should be 2, sorry

So for the denominator you're left with 9 - 2 = 7
