Answer:

#14sqrt(2)#

Explanation:

#color(blue)(32=4^2*2 rarr sqrt(32)=4sqrt(2))#

#color(red)(50=5^2*2 rarr sqrt(50)=5sqrt(2))#

#color(green)(18=3^2*2 rarr sqrt(18)=3sqrt(2))#

Therefore
#color(white)("XXX")2color(blue)(sqrt(32))+3color(red)(sqrt(50))-3color(green)(sqrt(18))#

#color(white)("XXX")=2*color(blue)(4sqrt(2))+3*color(red)(5sqrt(2))-3*color(green)(3sqrt(2))#

#color(white)("XXX")=8sqrt(2)+15sqrt(2)-9sqrt(2)#

#color(white)("XXX")=14sqrt(2)#
