If you figured out sqrt(3) then adding 2 should be easy. What do you mean by 6i?

The Dedekind cut corresponding to square root of three plus two is the set of all negative number together with all non-negative rational numbers, x, such that $(x- 2)^2< 3$. I don't know what you mean by "addition in 2". Did you mean "addition in R", that is, addition of Dedekind cuts? If so the Dedekind cut corresponding to x+ y, where x and y are Dedekind cuts is just the set, {a+ b} where a is a rational number in x and b is a rational number in y.
