Answer:

#x sqrt(11x)+2sqrt7)#

Explanation:

#44 = 4 times 11 " and 4 is " 2^2#
#99 = 9 times 11 " and 9 is " 3^2#

Both 4 and 9 have square roots

#63 = 3 times 21 = 3 times 3 times 7 =3^2 times 7#

#2 sqrt(44x^3) - sqrt(7) - sqrt(99x^3) + sqrt(63)" "# becomes

#2sqrt(2^2 times 11x^3) -sqrt(7)-sqrt(3^2 times 11x^3) +sqrt(3^2 times 7)#

#4sqrt(11x^3) -3sqrt(11x^3)+3sqrt(7)-sqrt(7)#

#sqrt(11x^3)+2sqrt(7)#

But #x^3 = x^2x# giving:

#x sqrt(11x)+2sqrt(7)#

There are no more squares that can be factored out of 11 and 7 so this is the final answer/
