## anonymous 4 years ago solve for x -1 + √(x+5) = 9

1. anonymous

Here would be the steps: 1. Add 1 to both sides 2. Square both sides. 3. Subtract 5 from both sides.

2. myininaya

$\sqrt{x+5}=9+1-x$ Combine like terms then square both sides

@myininaya I think it says "solve for x": I don't think that is part of the equation.
