# The value of (√32 + √48)/(√8 + √12) is equal to

a. √2

b. 2

c. 4

d. 8

**Solution:**

Given

(√32 + √48)/(√8 + √12)

It can be written as

= (√16 × 2 + √16 × 3)/ (√4 × 2 + √4 × 3)

By further simplification

= (4√2 + 4√3)/ (2√2 + 2√3)

Taking 4 as common in the __numerator__ and 2 in the __denominator__

= 4(√2 + √3)/ 2(√2 + √3)

So we get

= 4/2

= 2

Therefore, the value is 2.
