    anyways, are you familiar with factoring or distributive property of multiplication or adding like terms?

    ok, look at both terms, notice that they're both multiplied by sqrt(17) this means you can factor it out \[17\sqrt{17}-9\sqrt{17}= \sqrt{17} (17-9)\]

    17-9 is 8 but 8 alone isnt the final answer

    assuming that slash means sqrt sign then yes normally "/" means divided by
