Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{x5}=\sqrt{x}1\]\[(\sqrt{x5})^2=(\sqrt{x}1)^2\]v^\[(\sqrt{x}1)(\sqrt{x}1)\]FOIL \[(x\sqrt{x}\sqrt{x}+1)\]\[(x2\sqrt{x}1)\]\[x5=x2\sqrt{x}+1\]x 1 x 1 \[6=2\sqrt{x}\]/2 /2\[3=\sqrt{x}\]\[(3)^2=(\sqrt{x})^2\]\[9=x\]Finished!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I forget the name of the actual rule. But simply it's\[(x^2)(x^3)=x^5\]What you do is take the exponents and add them together.\[\sqrt{x}=x ^{1/2}\]Therefore\[(\sqrt{x})(\sqrt{x})=(x ^{1/2})(x ^{1/2})\]Which then makes\[(x ^{1/2})(x ^{1/2})=x^1\]or x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was taught "The Granny Rule: Granny's are fair, what they do to one chile they do to the other." Same with algebra, what you do to one side of the equation you have to do to the other.
