Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0too bad because if it was a +, 2 would work by inspection. this problem is a pain. you have to square twice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And it says solve the equation. The solution set is blank and blank

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok let me work it out. i was trying to guess what would give a perfect square for 10x+5 and 6x11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 works because 2*10+5=25 and 6*211=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would the sol set be 5,1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the solution would be x = 2, but it is not. i am still working.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0have to square both sides, then square again. i will show you but i want to get a correct answer so i don't blow it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good heavens. i will be back in ten minutes with the answer and the algebra. hold on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0square both sided. you will get \[16x62\sqrt{(10x+5)(6x11)}=36\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2\sqrt{(10x+5)(6x11)}=4216x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide by 2 \[\sqrt{(10x+5)(6x11)}=8x21\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is there only one solution of 62

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then square again. you will get \[(10x5)(6x11)=(8x+21)^2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes only one answer. you will solve a quadratic and get two solutions but only one will work.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0introduced a false solution when you squared

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0typo on last answer. it should have been \[(10x+5)(6x11)=(8x21)^2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0expand these to get \[60x^280x55=64x^2336x+441\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0set =0 and solve: \[4x^2256x+496=0\] divide by 4 \[x^264x+124=0\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factor \[(x62)(x2)=0\] \[x=62\] or \[x=2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but there is only one answer because 2 does not work. if you replace x by 2 in the original equation you get \[\sqrt{25}\sqrt{1}=6\] \[51=6\] which is false.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0negatives on both?? thx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.062 will work but only 62, not 2.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh negatives on both when factoring. but the only answer is x = 62

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to plug it into the original equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{10\times 62+5}\sqrt{6\times 6211}\] \[\sqrt{625}\sqrt{361}=2519=6\]
