Answer:

#15 * sqrt (3) - 50#

Explanation:

You use the rule that:

#( a b ) ^x = a^x b^x#

In this case:

# 3 sqrt (75) - 5 sqrt (100) = 3 sqrt (25 * 3) - 5 * 10#

Using the above rule on the left hand part of the expression:

# 3 sqrt (25) sqrt (3) - 5 * 10 = 3 * 5 * sqrt (3) - 50#

# = 15 * sqrt (3) - 50#
