Guys, sorry for the poor question formatting. I tried my best to make it proper. However, the square root inside the square root is somehow not appearing properly. Kindly, use the attachment to view the question.


Let x be the value of the equation..
\(X=(1+√3)(\sqrt{2+√3})\)...
So \(x^2=(1+3+2√3)(2+√3)=(4+2√3)(2+√3)=2(2+√3)(2+√3)=2(2+√3)^2\)..
Therefore x=√2*(2+√3)

Hi Chetan,

I was wondering could you please explain how you went from 2(2+√3)^2 to √2*(2+√3)? Would greatly appreciate it!

\(x^2=2(2+√3)^2=(√2)^2*(2+√3)^2.........x*x=(√2*√2)(2+√3)(2+√3)=√2*(2+√3)*√2*(2+√3)...\)
Thus x=√2(2+√3)

Hi csaluja,

Here \(x^2=2*(2+√3)^2\) (I hope you are clear till this point)
Taking square root both sides, we have
\(\sqrt{x^2}=\sqrt{2*(2+√3)^2}=\sqrt{2}*\sqrt{(2+√3)^2}\)
(You know \(\sqrt{a*b}=\sqrt{a}*\sqrt{b}\))
Or, \(x=\sqrt{2}*(2+√3)\)
Hope it helps.
