Verify that the quantities on both sides of the equation agree.
sqrt(6) + sqrt(2) = 2*sqrt{2 + sqrt(3)}
Yes, I can expand the left side.
[sqrt(6)+sqrt(2)]^2
[sqrt(6)+sqrt(2)]* [sqrt(6)+sqrt(2)]
Applying the FOIL method and simplifying, I get:
8 + 4(sqrt{3}) on the left side which equals the right side.
Thus, both sides of the radical equation are in total agreement. Thanks again.
