Apr 29, 2018

$3 \sqrt{6}$

#### Explanation:

$\sqrt{24}$ can be simplified to

$\sqrt{4} \times \sqrt{6}$

$\sqrt{4}$ equals $2$, so now the problem would look like this...

$3 \times 2 \sqrt{6} - 3 \sqrt{6}$

Multiply

$3 \times 2 = 6$

Now the problem looks like this...

$6 \sqrt{6} - 3 \sqrt{6}$

Now subtract $6 - 3$ to get the final answer...

$3 \sqrt{6}$
