Yeh just having a problem seeing a way to prove that 6^(1/2) is irrational.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Using this answer and proof by contradiction I need to prove that

2^(1/2) + 3^(1/2)is also irrational, however I sould be able to attempt this if I can get the above right.

Any help much appreciated.
