Rationalize the denominator of \(\displaystyle \frac{1}{\sqrt{2} + \sqrt{3} + \sqrt{7}}\), and write your answer in the form \( \frac{A\sqrt{2} + B\sqrt{3} + C\sqrt{7} + D\sqrt{E}}{F},\) where everything is in simplest radical form and the fraction is in lowest terms. What is \(A + B + C + D + E + F\)?

1 (sqrt(2) + sqrt(3) - sqrt(7)

_____________________________________________

(sqrt (2) + sqrt(3) + sqrt(7) )  (sqrt(2) + sqrt(3) - sqrt(7))

 

 

(sqrt(2) + sqrt(3) -sqrt(7)

__________________________________________________________

2 + sqrt(6) - sqrt(14) + sqrt(6) + 3 - sqrt(21) + sqrt(14) + sqrt(21) - 7

 

 

 

sqrt(2) + sqrt(3) - sqrt(7)   (2sqrt(6) + 2)

___________________________________

(2sqrt(6) - 2) (2sqrt(6) + 2)
