## anonymous 5 years ago solve sq.rt. 3y+2=4

1. anonymous

y= 2/3

2. anonymous

the sq root of that is .8164965

3. anonymous

y=14/3

4. anonymous

$\sqrt{3y+2}=4$ is this the question?

5. anonymous

yes

6. anonymous

first, squared both side. then, make it in term of ay=b, a,b is are arbitrary. finally, make it y=b/a

7. anonymous

sq.both sides sq.3y+2 = sq.4

8. anonymous

i am confused i have no examples in my books

9. myininaya

You should always check you answers when you raise both sides to an even power though

10. anonymous

so y= 2/3

11. myininaya

yes

12. anonymous

13. anonymous

okay

14. anonymous

3y + 2 = 4 sq 3y + 2 = 16 3y = 16-2 3y=14 y=14/3 y=4 and 2/3
