Prove that root of p+root of q is irrational
We can also show that √p + √q is irrational, where p and q are non-distinct primes, i.e. p = q
We use same method: Assume √p + √q is rational.
√p + √q = x, where x is rational
√p + √p = x
2√p = x
√p = x/2
Since both x and 2 are rational, and rational numbers are closed under division, then x/2 is rational. But since p is not a perfect square, then √p is not rational. But this is a contradiction. Original assumption must be wrong.
So √p + √q is irrational, where p and q are non-distinct primes
