Root both sides. Noting if y^2 = 36 , then y = ± 6

Of course, if you'd asked ' which would be the most fun first step? ' , then that would be the last on my list.

The most logical (and fast) would be rooting both sides: sqrt((x+5)²)=sqrt(36) x+5 = 6 x = 6-5 x = 1

Oh, God, my bad. x+5 = ±6 then x would be ±1
