## anonymous 5 years ago hw do u solve square root over 6-p=p?

1. anonymous

Do you mean $\sqrt{p}/(6-p) = p$

2. anonymous

nevermind, you made a different question

$\sqrt{6-p}=p$ square both sides getting:$6-p=p ^{2}$subtract 6-p from both sides getting: $p ^{2}+p-6=0$ factor and set to 0 (p+3)(p-2)=0 solve for p: p=-3, p=2
