Rationalisation

I have a doubt. How do you rationalize the following expression? \(\frac{1}{\sqrt[3]{2} + 1}\)

Let cube root of 2 be x.

Then multiply above and below with (x^2 - x + 1).

You get the denominator as (x^3 + 1) = 3 a rational number.

Can you explain what is the motivation behind "Multiply with \( x^2 - x + 1 \)?"

For another expression, how do we determine what to do?

E.g. how do you rationalize \( \frac{1}{ \sqrt{2} + \sqrt[3] { 3} } \)?

Doubt again. Why should we multiply the given expression?

he used this identity \[\displaystyle{\left( { x }^{ 3 }+1 \right) =\left( x+1 \right) \left( { x }^{ 2 }-x+1 \right) }\]
