3 root 7

Can you simplify further?
3. Make everything respect to

so your equation would be

1√28 – 2√63 +√7

1√28 = 1√(4 x 7) = 2√7
2√63 = 2√(7 x 9) = 6√7
√7=√7
so 1√28 – 2√63 +√7 = 2√7-6√7+√7= -3√7
5. how do you peeps get these maths symbols in your posts?

I copy the symbol from microsoft word
7. Its like getting all fractions with the same denominator. First simplify the surds down so all have root 7 then do what you like with them.

1√28 = 1√(4 x 7) = 2√7
2√63 = 2√(7 x 9) = 6√7
√7=√7
so 1√28 – 2√63 +√7 = 2√7-6√7+√7= -3√7
How do you get -3?
Isn't 2-6=-4
