### Question

What is the value of ${√17}/6$ − $5/{√17}$?

**A**

${-13√17}/102$.

**B**

${+13√17}/102$.

**C**

${-5√17}/102$.

**D**

${+5√17}/102$.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The given expression can be simplified to ${{(√17)^2} - 6 × 5}/{6 × √17}$, which is same as ${17 - 30}/{6 × √17}$, which is same as ${-13/{6 × √17}$. Rationalizing, we get ${-13/{6 × √17} × {√17/√17}$ which gives ${-13√17}/102$
