good so sqrt(52) = sqrt(4*13) = 2sqrt(13)

Sorry 9 not 39

Vocaloid:

good so sqrt(117) = sqrt(9*13) = 3(sqrt13) so now they're all in terms of sqrt(13) we just add/subtract like terms

Vocaloid:

square root of 52. − the square root of 13. + the square root of 117. 2sqrt(13) - sqrt(13) + 3sqrt(13) = 4(sqrt13) = answer A
