color(white)("XXX")3sqrt(11)

#### Explanation:

Assuming you meant:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} \sqrt{11} + 2 \sqrt{11}$

color(white)("XXX")"a sheep" + 2 " sheep"
color(white)("XXX")= 3 " sheep"#

...and replacing "sheep" with $\sqrt{11}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} \sqrt{11} + 2 \sqrt{11}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} = 3 \sqrt{11}$
