## anonymous 5 years ago how do you solve \sqrt{2m-6}=\sqrt{3m-14}

1. anonymous

it's really simple if you just square both sides

2. anonymous

m=8

3. anonymous

i did but i got it wrong

4. anonymous

is it 2m-6=3m-14 2m+8=3m 8=m

5. anonymous

$(\sqrt{2m-6})^{2}=(\sqrt{3m-14})^{2}$

6. anonymous

2m-6=3m-14 -m=-8 m=8

7. anonymous

yeah thats what i put but my friend said it was wrong and how did i get that

8. anonymous

what the reason??

9. anonymous

just to show how i got that like step by step

Step 1. Square both sides getting: 2m-6=3m-14 Step 2. add 6 and -3m to both sides of the equation getting -1m=-8 Step 3. divide both sides by -1 getting m=8. asrofie laid it out for you step by step.
