 Evaluate (1+√2÷√5+√3)+(1-√2÷√5-√3)
if you mean ...

$\dfrac{1+\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3}} + \dfrac{1-\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3}}$

common denominator is $(\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3})(\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3})$ ...

$\dfrac{(1+\sqrt{2})(\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3})}{(\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3})(\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3})} + \dfrac{(1-\sqrt{2})(\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3})}{(\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3})(\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3})}$

can you take it from here?

Could we at least get you to use parenthesis?
(14-8√60)÷(6√20-10√12)

The first step is to rationalize the denominator. The conjugate expression to 6√20-10√12 is 6√20+10√12. Multiply the top and bottom of the original expression and see where it leads.

Please do not post a new problem in the same thread. Start a new thread for this problem.

You have a model from the previous problem, so show some work there.
