Answer

$4\sqrt{3}$

Work Step by Step

Simplify the radicals that can still be simplified by factoring the radicand so that one of the factors is a perfect square: $=\sqrt3+\sqrt{9(3)} \\=\sqrt3 + \sqrt{3^2(3)} \\=\sqrt3 + 3\sqrt3$ RECALL: For any real numbers $a, b,$ and $c$, $ac+bc=(a+b)c$ Use the rule above to combine like terms: $=(1+3)\sqrt{3} \\=4\sqrt{3}$
