Suppose space space square root of 2 plus square root of 3 space equals space straight x space is space straight a space rational space number.
open parentheses square root of 2 plus square root of 3 space close parentheses squared space equals space straight x squared
rightwards double arrow space 5 space plus space 2 square root of 6 equals space straight x squared
rightwards double arrow square root of 6 space equals space fraction numerator straight x squared space minus space 5 over denominator 2 end fraction
Since comma space it space is space assumed space that space square root of 2 plus square root of 3 space equals space straight x space is space straight a space rational space number.
rightwards double arrow straight x squared space is space also space straight a space rational space number.
rightwards double arrow fraction numerator straight x squared space minus space 5 over denominator 2 end fraction is space also space straight a space rational space number
rightwards double arrow square root of 6 space is space straight a space rational space number
But space we space know space that space square root of 6 space is space an space irrational space number
So comma space we space arrive space at space straight a space contradiction.
rightwards double arrow square root of 2 plus square root of 3 space is space an space irrational space number.
