Answer:

#4sqrt(3) -3sqrt(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) -4sqrt(2)# to #-3sqrt(2)# (since there is an invisible 1 in front of the #sqrt(2)#.

#4sqrt(3) + sqrt(2) - 4sqrt(2)#
#4sqrt(3) -3 sqrt(2)#
