    \[\sqrt{(1+\sqrt{3}/2})/2\] I know I need to get rid of the denominators and bring something out of the radical but I'm not sure how to do that

    it is all under the radical?

    \[\huge \sqrt{\frac{1+\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}}{2}}\]

    multiply top and bottom inside the radical by 2 to clear the compound fraction

    you get \[\sqrt{\frac{2+\sqrt3}{4}}\]

    then take the square root of the denominator and end with \[\frac{\sqrt{2+\sqrt3}}{2}\] that is the most you can do
