Please help me solve? I'm looking at this problem and not seeing how to work it so that my answer comes out looking like the choices...

    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

    How would I go about doing that? Right now I have \[2\sqrt{4x ^{3}}-\sqrt{7}-\sqrt{9x ^{3}}+\sqrt{63}\]

    \(\sqrt {44x^3} = \sqrt {4} \sqrt{x^2} \sqrt{11x}=...?\) you just can't eliminate 7...

    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...
