sqrt((x+b)²)=x+b

wherever there is a Root + Square they cancel each other so sqrt ((x+b) ^ 2 = x+b

Notice that the assumption about positive variables is important! For example: \[ \sqrt{(-2)^2} = 2 \neq -2 \] It is not always true that root and square root "cancel".

yeah i know , if there is an addition function which is square we can't cancel it with the sqrt right ?

Sorry, I meant "square and square root" not "root and square root".

No problem with your english. I'll explain a little more. The "cancelling" of the square root and the square is actually the property of being inverse functions. The trick is though that they are not inverses everywhere, only for positive numbers. In general \[ (\sqrt{x})^2 = x \] is true but only valid for \[ x>0. \] In general \[ \sqrt{x^2} = |x| \] which is true for all values of x. Since \[ |x| = x \] for x>0, we have \[ \sqrt{x^2} = x \] for positive values of x.

=D thats what i meant + i heard that if there is smthing like \[\sqrt{a ^{2}+ b^{2}}\] it will not cancel it right ?

Right, it won't cancel it, because of the plus. That's how algebra works. My original point was more about how functions and inverses work.
