-------------

5(sqrt)-3

I took this problem and took the following steps:

2*5(sqrt) 5(sqrt)+3

---------- * -----------

5(sqrt)-3 5(sqrt)+3

and got an answer of

2(5+3)

------

(-3)^2+(5(sqrt)^2

=16 8

------- or ---

34 17

is this correct?

I have tried looking up online for what else I would do instead, but the examples are showing similar to this.

Please help
