a is the product of 3 and the square root of 2 = 3√2,
b is the product of 2 and the square root of 3 = 2√3 and
c is the product of 2 and the square root of 6=2√6
If x is the square of the sum of a and b = $$(3√2+2√3)^2=18+12+12√6=30+12√6$$
y is the product of 6 and the difference of 5 and c = 6*(5-2√6)=30-12√6
and z is the product of 2 squared and 3 squared, = $$2^2*3^2=36$$
what is $$\frac{xy}{z} = \frac{(30+12√6)(30-12√6)}{36}=\frac{30^2-12^2*6}{36}=(900-864)/36=36/36=1$$

A

A. $$1$$

B. $$30 - 12\sqrt{6}$$

C. $$36$$

D. $$30 + 12\sqrt{6}$$

E. $$64$$
