Work Step by Step

$(\sqrt x-\sqrt{11})^2$ $(\sqrt{x}-\sqrt{11})(\sqrt{x}-\sqrt{11})$ Use the FOIL method to multiply the binomial. Multiply the First terms, the Outside terms, the Inside terms, and the Last terms. $(\sqrt{x}\times\sqrt{x})+(-\sqrt{11}\times\sqrt x)+(-\sqrt{11}\times\sqrt x)+(-\sqrt{11}\times-(\sqrt {11}))$ Simplify. $x+(-\sqrt{11x})+(-\sqrt{11x})+11$ Combine like terms/like radicals. $x-2\sqrt{11x}+11$
