    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let us assume the contrary.

    i.e; 5 + 3√2 is rational

    ∴ 5 + 3√2 = ab, where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are coprime integers and b ≠ 0

    3√2 = ab – 5

    3√2 = a−5bb

    Or √2 = a−5b3b

    Because ‘a’ and ‘b’ are integers a−5b3b is rational

    That contradicts the fact that √2 is irrational.

    The contradiction is because of the incorrect assumption that (5 + 3√2) is rational.

    So, 5 + 3√2 is irrational.
