\(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} + \frac{1}{3+\sqrt{3}} + \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}-3}\)
= \(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} + \frac{1}{3+\sqrt{3}} - \frac{1}{3-\sqrt{3}}\)
= \(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{3} - \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}\)
= 0

A. \(\sqrt{3}\)

B. 1

C. 0

D. -1

E. \(-\sqrt{3}\)


Hi

Rationalize and Simplify \(\frac{1}{3+\sqrt{3}} and \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}-3}\)

We get \((2sqrt{3}+{3-\sqrt{3}}-{\sqrt{3}+3})/6\)

By Simplification we get 0

\(\frac{1}{3+\sqrt{3}} - \frac{1}{3-\sqrt{3}} = \frac{3-\sqrt{3}}{(3+\sqrt{3})(3-\sqrt{3})} - \frac{3+\sqrt{3}}{(3+\sqrt{3})(3-\sqrt{3})} = \frac{(3-\sqrt{3}) - (3+\sqrt{3})}{(3+\sqrt{3})(3-\sqrt{3})} = \frac{-2\sqrt{3}}{3^2-\sqrt{3}^2} = -\frac{2\sqrt{3}}{6}=-\frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}\)

It's important not to forget that there's an assumed 1 in front of the radical - sometimes members post solutions without putting a 1 in front of the radical - which can be confusing for those less familiar with math or perhaps sometimes those forgetting- that or sometimes when you cross multiply a fraction and figure that the numerators will be the same people don't write out the answer because there's minds work a bit faster- which is good for the GMAT maybe just a bit more work for those learning math or rusty.
