During my revision for my June exams (first year engineering) I came across this problem:
Simple math as it seems it kept me busy for 5 hours and stil no results. I know the answer is 4, but the catch is we are not allowed to use calculator. So I'm not interested in an answer, I'm interested in a method.
Any suggestions please?
I've already found multiple ways of simplifying it, so that there is no division by a square root but the method is still eluding me...
