is x+h+5 all under the square root? or just x+h?
anonymous
  • anonymous
just x+h
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok.. so you want to find a value for h that makes the expression \[\sqrt{x+h}+5=0 \implies \sqrt{x+h}=-5\] but the square root can't have a negative value. so, such h doesn't exist.

wait, the sqroot of a number can have a negative value, the SQUARE of a number can't have a real value

square both sides and you get x+h = 25

that's not right mindedone, you're suggesting that h=25-x is a solution.. check by plugging back into the equation and see what you get.

Keep in mind though that if you plug h=25-x into the original equation you get +-sqrt(25) = -5, and so the negative square root does satisfy the equation.

you get sqrt(25) = -5

sqrt(25) = +-5
