    Dividing radical expressions

    (3 + sq7)
    ---------
    (2 - sq7)

    <=> ?

    What can be done with this expression? Can it be expressed as a non-fraction? By sq7 I mean the square root of 7. Thanks in advance!

    You can rationalise the denominator. I suggest that you review your textbook or class notes for the details.
