#### Explanation:

Type into a calculator the following

4/ (1+√3)

So you do the denominator first and then the numerator.

If you don't want to use a calculator, then you can find the square root of 3 and then add that to 1.

After that, divide 4 by the sum of that.

While this could be evaluated directly using a calculator, I believe the intent was to simplify by rationalizing the denominator.
