How do you simplify #14 /(sqrt5 + sqrt3)#?
This is completely simplified if you want to combine radicals. However, we can simplify further by rationalizing the denomiator.
To rationalize the denomiator, we must multiply the entire expression by the conjugate of the denominator. The conjugate forms a difference of squares with the denominator so to cancel out the radicals.
The conjugate would be
