    FIrst one multiply by the -2 then the second root 7. For the second one you multiply the exterior numbers by each other and the surds by each other.

    1. Squaring two identical square roots give the number of which they are the root. The rest is just multiplication.

    2. Same as for 1. but remember the square roots of some numbers give nice answers.

    Sorry, full solution had to go!

    Not meant to give full solutions. With surds you are meant to go to the smallest surd number.

    Alex already said that. My post was more for the OP as they were still asking for a full answer.
