    That subtraction should be addition.

    Yes, that, and I forgot that squaring a negative term results in a positive answer.

    This should be: \[6\sqrt{2}\]

    I got 8sqrt(2) because both those parenthesis squared are 65

    I broke 128 down into factors. That left me with: \[2*2*2\sqrt{6}\] You are right.

    No problem it would be also easy to break it down as sqrt(2*64)
