## anonymous one year ago Simplify 5√11-12√11-2√11

1. Vocaloid

well, since all of them are sqrt(11), we can combine like terms 5-12-2=?

-9

Hint When it comes to problems like this, I like to replace the square root with a variable like so $\Large 5\sqrt{11}-12\sqrt{11}-2\sqrt{11}$ $\Large 5{\color{red}{\sqrt{11}}}-12{\color{red}{\sqrt{11}}}-2{\color{red}{\sqrt{11}}}$ $\Large 5{\color{red}{x}}-12{\color{red}{x}}-2{\color{red}{x}}$
