Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) take square root of both sides: x8=pm 6 pm means plus or minus then add 8 on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^216X+64=36 X^216X+28=0 Then, just find it using the quadratic formula, so the answers will be: (16+/12)/2= 14 or 2 Myiniaya i think that way is incorrect because you are cancelling one of the roots, and you need all the answers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1She said \(\pm 6\) which is not cancelling one of the roots.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(x8)^2 = 36\]\[\implies x8 = \pm6\]\[\implies x = 8\pm 6\]\[\implies x \in \{2,14\}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for b) you have (8x+x)(x6)=0 expand: 8x^248x+x^26x=0 simplify: 9x^254x=0 x=0 OR x= 5 and polpak, sorry didnt pay attention to the pm, so pm is +/, and yes that would be correct!
