# How do you simplify 4sqrt3+sqrt2-4sqrt2?

Oct 31, 2015

$4 \sqrt{3} - 3 \sqrt{2}$

#### Explanation:

To simplify, you would combine like terms (same variable or exponent), and in this case, the like terms both have $\sqrt{2}$.

So simplify $\sqrt{2} - 4 \sqrt{2}$ to $- 3 \sqrt{2}$ (since there is an invisible 1 in front of the $\sqrt{2}$.

$4 \sqrt{3} + \sqrt{2} - 4 \sqrt{2}$
$4 \sqrt{3} - 3 \sqrt{2}$
