Using elementary methods we derive a simple criterion to decide if a nestedradical of the formp3 p +3 p can be denested. We present two methods tocompute such a denesting.1 IntroductionAs for many subjects in number theory the history of denesting nested radicals leadsus to Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920). One of the questions he sent to the Journalof the Indian Mathematical Society was Question 525 [7]:Shew how to nd the square roots of surds of the form3 pA +3 pB ...
