Examine, whether the following number are rational or irrational:
Let `x=sqrt3+sqrt2` be the rational number
Squaring on both sides, we get
Since, x is rational number
⇒ x2 is rational
⇒ x2 - 5 is rational
`rArr(x^2-5)/2` is rational number
`rArr sqrt6` is rational number
But, `sqrt6` is an irrational number
So, we arrive at contradiction
Hence, `sqrt3+sqrt2` is an irrational number.
