Solution

We know that rationalization factor of the denominator is `sqrt3`. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression `2/sqrt3` by `sqrt3` to get

`2/sqrt3 xx sqrt3/sqrt3 = (2 xx sqrt3)/(sqrt3 xx sqrt3)`

`= (2sqrt3)/3`

`= (2 xx 1.732)/3`

`= 3.4641/3`

= 1.1547

The value of expression 1.1547 can be round off to three decimal places as 1.155
