Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what i didnt get, was even though the 3x was square root, you still divide. I understand you have to simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because 3x is like 3*x, so you do the opposite on the other side of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sqrt(3x) 4 = 6 ; +4 each side sqrt(3x) = 10 ; ^2 both sides 3x = 100 ; /3 both sides x = 100/3
