Work Step by Step

Using the properties of equality, the given expression, $ 2\sqrt{24}-4\sqrt{54}+3\sqrt{96} ,$ simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 2\sqrt{4\cdot6}-4\sqrt{9\cdot6}+3\sqrt{16\cdot6} \\\\= 2\sqrt{(2)^2\cdot6}-4\sqrt{(3)^2\cdot6}+3\sqrt{(4)^2\cdot6} \\\\= 2(2)\sqrt{6}-4(3)\sqrt{6}+3(4)\sqrt{6} \\\\= 4\sqrt{6}-12\sqrt{6}+12\sqrt{6} \\\\= 4\sqrt{6} .\end{array}
