Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2  10x + 25 = 14 + 25 (x  10)^2 = 39 x  10 = +sqrt(39) x = + sqrt(39) + 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but then you need to add 5 to both sides... x = +sqrt(39) + 5 sorry I was texting and doing math at the same time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to find a common denominator.. is the + 9 in the denominator or all by itself?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the denominators are m and m + 9 and 4 so your common denominator is 4m(m+9) do you agree?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we multiply everything by that correct?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because you have denominators and an equal sign. you need to multiply each term by your common denominator. 4m(m+9)*2/m + 4m(m+9) * 3/(m+9) = 4m(m+9)*11/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08m + 72 + 12m = 11m^2 + 99m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because you have an equal sign and an x^2 term you need to put the other side = to 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would use the quadratic formula here.. Do you agree with my steps so far?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00 = (11m + 9)(m +8) m = 9/11 or 8 sorry it factors.
