Square root of 18 minus Square root of 50

I was showing you the steps, but you keep leaving, which implies you just want the answer.

Sorry i'm knew to this website? I'm not sure how do you show me the steps? I really need to learn its just a review for me! Sorry about that ~ Thanks though!

Alright, np, I'll show you it.

\[\sqrt{18}-\sqrt{50}\] \[\sqrt{18} = \sqrt{2\times3^3} = 3\sqrt{2}\] \[\sqrt{50}=\sqrt{2\times5^2}=5\sqrt{2}\] \[3\sqrt{2}-5\sqrt{2} \implies -2\sqrt{2}\]

that should be a 3^2 not 3^3

Thank you very much! Wasn't sure how to approach this problem! Now I know to make common square root radicals :D

\[\sqrt{2\times3^2}=3\sqrt{2}\]
