## anonymous 5 years ago how do you solve this equation 2=√x/2

1. anonymous

Try squaring both sides.

2. anonymous

i did but i dont get it

3. anonymous

What did you get when you squared both sides? Also is the equation $2 = \frac{\sqrt{x}}{2}$ or $2 = \sqrt{(x/2)}$

4. anonymous

its the 2nd one

5. anonymous

Ok, so squaring both sides you got?

6. anonymous

ok im going to do it again

7. anonymous

i got 4 but i dont know if that is right

8. anonymous

That is not correct. $2 = \sqrt{(x/2)}$ $\rightarrow 2^2 = \sqrt{(x/2)}^2$ $\rightarrow 4 = \frac{x}{2}$ $\rightarrow x = ?$

thank you i get it now
