Work Step by Step

Using the properties of radicals, the given expression, $ 6\sqrt{48}+5\sqrt{3} ,$ simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 6\sqrt{16\cdot3}+5\sqrt{3} \\\\= 6\sqrt{(4)^2\cdot3}+5\sqrt{3} \\\\= 6\cdot4\sqrt{3}+5\sqrt{3} \\\\= 24\sqrt{3}+5\sqrt{3} \\\\= 29\sqrt{3} .\end{array}
