Root 3 + root 2

  1. Feb 2, 2005 #1
    I need to show that this is an algebraic number.

    In other words,

    I need to show: an*x^n + an1*x^(n-1) + ... + a1 * x^1 + a0 * x^0 =
    where the a terms are not ALL 0 but some of them can be.

    Like for root 2 by itself,

    I have 1 * (root 2) ^ 2 + 0 * (root 2)^1 + -2 * (root 2) ^ 0
