    Combine like terms, right? I don't see how to combine \[2\sqrt{44x ^{3}}\] and \[-\sqrt{99x ^{3}}\]

    before combining see if you can simplify each term first

    that was just simplification of constant terms.... \(3\sqrt 7- \sqrt 7= 2 \sqrt 7\) simplification of 'x' terms is still remaining. and more important thing is that you understand....so that you can do other problems on your own...
