Work Step by Step

Simplifying each term and then combining like terms, the given expression, $ 4\sqrt{27}-3\sqrt{3} ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 4\sqrt{9\cdot3}-3\sqrt{3} \\\\= 4\sqrt{(3)^2\cdot3}-3\sqrt{3} \\\\= 4\cdot3\sqrt{3}-3\sqrt{3} \\\\= 12\sqrt{3}-3\sqrt{3} \\\\= 9\sqrt{3} .\end{array}
