    Look at the lefthand side 1 +sqrt(2) + sqrt(3) + sqrt(6)

    and recall that sqrt(6) = sqrt(2) * sqrt(3)

    Does that help?

    I'm not sure if my hint will help but it is a curious connection to simplify the lefthand side into factors.

    so it didn't help you factor the LHS or it didn't help you with the problem as a whole?

    Do not post thumbnails. Type out the problem and the solution. Read the 'pinned' thread "Guidlines for students and helpers" by Vela, which explains the reason for this policy.
