Jambmaths question: 

if $\frac{2\sqrt{3}-2}{\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2}}=m+n\sqrt{6}$. If the value of m and n respectively 

Option A: 

1, –2

Option B: 

–2, 1

Option C: 

$-\tfrac{2}{5}$,1

Option D: 

$2,\tfrac{3}{5}$

Jamb Maths Solution: 

$\begin{align}  & \frac{2\sqrt{3}-2}{\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2}}=\frac{2\sqrt{3}-2}{\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2}}\times \frac{\sqrt{3}-2\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{3}-2\sqrt{2}}\text{      } \\ & \text{multiplying the denomination and denominator by } \\ & \sqrt{3}-2\sqrt{2}\text{ which the conjugate of }\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2} \\ & =\frac{6-4\sqrt{6}-\sqrt{6}+4}{3-8}=\frac{10-5\sqrt{6}}{-5}=-2+\sqrt{6} \\ & m=-2,n=1 \\\end{align}$
