23(243-2)-2(5+72) Can be expanded and simplified to the form

p + q2 + r3. the value of p + q + r is_____

First I simplified the V243 and I got 9V3

2V3(9V3-2)-V2(5+7V2)

18V9-4V3-5V2-7V2

54-4V3-5V2-7V2

54-4V3-12V2

But this just doesnt work out, and i have no idea what ive done wrong.

**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 10:11pm2√3(√243-2)-√2(5+7√2)

= 2√729 - 4√3 - 5√2 - 7√4

= 54 - 4√3 - 5√2 - 14

= 40 - 4√3 - 5√2

comparing this with

p + q√2 + r√3

p=40, q= -5, and r = -4

so p+q+r = 40-5-4 = 31

check my arithmetic.
