Just for verification, can you please check my answer?
Question: 3(x+2) = 6

2(x+1)
my answer:
6(x^2+3x+1)
Work:
expanded first after multiplying both sides with 2(x+1).==> 6x^2+18+6==> took 6 out. to get final answer. Am i correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im stuck :( whats the next step? i cant think of any factors of 6x^2+18x+6... ah am i not suppose to factor, and use quadratic formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hang on, what is the equation you just posted equal to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my previous post is the multiplication of both sides with 2x+2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have 6x^2+18x+6=0 right now, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like (3x+6)(2x+2) = 6 =>6x^2+18+12 = 6 ==> 6x^2+18+6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perfect, so then you can factor out the 6 like you did before and use the quadratic formula on what's in the parentheses

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so it would be ___ ___ 3 ±√1 and 3 ±√1   2 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you show me how you set up the quadratic formula because I got \[(3\pm \sqrt{5})/2\] for the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm ok b ± √b  4ac  2a so 3±√34(1*1) / 2(1) * hey im sorry but can you help me in an hour? im at work and i over procrastinated and i need to finish my work, but ill be back online within an hour or hour and a half.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I gotta go soon, but FYI your formula's wrong: it's supposed to be b^24ac under the radical

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh im sorry that was a typo...in both.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah i see, i did this within my previous answer too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does that solve the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but what would my final answer look like? 6 ((3±√5)/2) ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, because the 6 we factored out earlier doesn't affect the final answer because if we divided both sides by 6 before using the quadratic formula, we'd get x^2+3x+2=0 since 0/6=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I hope that made some sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, your final answer would be \[(3\pm \sqrt{5})/2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because the 6 canceled earlier

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm ok i think i understand. because we divided 6, theres no need for its return. so i would just write x = (3±√5)/2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Unless your book/teacher want you to write the two answers separately

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In which case it would be \[x=(3+ \sqrt{5})/2\] and \[x=(3\sqrt{5})/2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Umm that's all for now, i should do my work now. But thank you very much :) I'll most likely post more questions within an hour or so to check my work so make sure i don't make mistakes like this again :p
