Get rid of the square roots of the denominator: $\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3}}$
I squared the whole denominator, but that didn't help.
Also I searched for a propriety or identity like ${A}^{2}-{B}^{2}$, but I didn't see one that could fit. Any help is appreciated.

$\begin{array}{rl}\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3}}& =\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{3}}\cdot \frac{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3}}\\ & =\frac{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3}}{\left(\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}{\right)}^{2}-3}\\ & =\frac{\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3}}{4\left(6-\sqrt{35}\right)}\cdot \frac{6+\sqrt{35}}{6+\sqrt{35}}\\ & =\frac{\left(\sqrt{7}-2\sqrt{5}-\sqrt{3}\right)\left(6+\sqrt{35}\right)}{4}\end{array}$

To get rid of the square roots of the denominator, you may use ${a}^{2}-{b}^{2}=\left(a+b\right)\left(a-b\right)$
