Work Step by Step

Simplifying each term and then combining like terms, the given expression, $ 9\sqrt{50}-4\sqrt{2} ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 9\sqrt{25\cdot2}-4\sqrt{2} \\\\= 9\sqrt{(5)^2\cdot2}-4\sqrt{2} \\\\= 9\cdot5\sqrt{2}-4\sqrt{2} \\\\= 45\sqrt{2}-4\sqrt{2} \\\\= 41\sqrt{2} .\end{array}
