Can 6\sqrt 6-\sqrt 3 be further simplified? It feels as if this in not a fully simplified form, and I am a bit weak on surds so I can't confirm this for myself.

You could take out a common factor of \sqrt3 but it would not really improve on what you have

One easy way to check: slam it into your calculator and see what it churns out (if you have a casio).
