(C) 11√3

(E) 30√3

To simplify roots, we'll use the following rule: √(ab) = (√a)(√b)

√363 = √(121 x 3)
= (√121)(√3)
= 11√3

√147 = √(49 x 3)
= (√49)(√3)
= 7√3

√27 = √(9 x 3)
= (√9)(√3)
= 3√3

So, √363 + √147 + √27 = 11√3 + 7√3 + 3√3
= 21√3

No reason not to estimate! The answer choices are very far apart. If you're better with reasoning than with arithmetic, give this a try:

√363 is a bit less than √400, so let's say it's about 20
√147 is a bit more than √144, so it's about 12
√27 is a bit more than √25, so it's about 5

20 + 12 + 5 = 37. We want 37 as an answer...

6√6 and 7√6 are definitely too small. The square root of 6 is only around 2.5-ish. To make 6 or 7 into 37, we'd have to multiply them by something much larger than √6.

11√3 is also too small. √3 is less than 2, so this answer will be less than 22.

30√3 is too large, since it'll be in the neighborhood of 1.5*30 = 45.

(D) is correct.

$$√3*11^2+√7^2*3 + √3^3$$

$$= 11√3 + 7√3 + 3√3$$

$$= 21√3$$

Thus, answer must be (D) $$21√3$$
