**(iii)**

**(iv)**

**(v)**

**(vi)**

**Solution:**

(i)We know that rationalisation factor for. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression, to getOn equating rational and irrational terms, we get

Hence, we get a = 2, b = 1

(ii)We know that rationalisation factor for. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression, to getOn equating rational and irrational terms, we get

Hence, we get a = 3, b = 2

(iii)We know that rationalisation factor for. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression, to getOn equating rational and irrational terms, we get

Hence, we get a =, b =

(iv)We know that rationalisation factor for. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression, to getOn equating rational and irrational terms, we get

Hence, we get a = -1, b = 1

(v)We know that rationalisation factor for. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression, to getOn equating rational and irrational terms, we get

Hence, we get a =, b =

(vi)We know that rationalisation factor for. We will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression, to getOn equating rational and irrational terms, we get

Hence, we get a =, b =

**(i)**

**(ii)**

**Solution:**

(i)We know that rationalization factor forWe will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression

to get

Putting the values of

We get

Hence, the given expression is simplified to 0.102.

(ii)We know that rationalization factor forWe will multiply numerator and denominator of the given expression

to get

Putting the values of

We get

Hence, the given expression is simplified to 14.071.

**Question 11. If****, find the value of**

**Solution:**

We have,

It can be simplified as

On squaring both sides, we get

The given equation can be rewritten as

Therefore, we have

Hence, the value of given expression is 10.
