root(363) = 11 * root (3)
root (147) = 7 * root (3)
root (27) = 3 * root (3)

adding them, we get 21 root(3)

Hence, D will be the answer.

\(\sqrt{{363}} +\sqrt{{147}} + \sqrt{{27}}\)

363 = 11*11*3
147 = 7*7*3
27 = 3*3*3

= \(11\sqrt{{3}} + 7\sqrt{{3}} + 3\sqrt{{3}}\)

= \(21\sqrt{{3}}\)

Ans : Option D

363- Square root of 3 * Square root of 121 - 11 root 3
147- Square root of 49 * Square root of 3 - 7 root 3
27- Square root of 9 * Square root of 3 - 3 root 3

Add of these up (11 root 3 + 7 root 3 + 3 root 3) and we will get 21 root 3; Hence D

What is \(\sqrt{363} + \sqrt{147}+ \sqrt{27}\)


A. \(6\sqrt{6}\)

B. \(7\sqrt{6}\)

C. \(11\sqrt{3}\)

D. \(21\sqrt{3}\)

E. \(30\sqrt{3}\)


Let’s simplify each root:

√363 = √121 x √3 = 11√3

√147 = √49 x √3 = 7√3

√27 = √9 x √3 = 3√3

Thus, we have:

11√3 + 7√3 + 3√3 = 21√3

Answer: D

\(\sqrt{11*11*3 + 7*7*3 + 3*3*3}\)

\(11*\sqrt{3} + 7*\sqrt{3} + 3*\sqrt{3}\)

\(21*\sqrt{3}\)
