is [tex]\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{5}[/tex] an algebraic number?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i used 2 and 5 arbitrarily, try any integers (as long as they are not the same integer, in which case it is algebraic)

I tried finding a polynomial with rational coefficients that zeros at this value, but haven't found any.
