To simplify the expression (sqrt(x-2) + 5) / sqrt(x-2), we can rationalize the denominator. By multiplying both the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator, which is sqrt(x-2) - 5, we eliminate the square root in the denominator. This results in the simplified expression of 1 + 5 / (sqrt(x-2) - 5).
