    Multiply and divide both the sides by: \[\sqrt{x+4}-\sqrt{x -3}\]

    You mean multiply by \[(\sqrt{x+4} - \sqrt{x-3})/(\sqrt{x+4} - \sqrt{x-3})\]

    just do what @georgeblue22 said.. I was thinking it as an expression but it is an equation.. I forgot to see there 1 on right hand side...

    See, multiply both the sides by : \(\sqrt{x+4}+\sqrt{x -3}\)..

    That will help to get of the square root on the left side.

    So 7 = sqrt(x + 4) + sqrt(x - 3).

    \[\frac{(\sqrt{x+4} - \sqrt{x-3})}{(\sqrt{x+4} + \sqrt{x-3})} \times (\sqrt{x+4} + \sqrt{x-3}) = 1 \times (\sqrt{x+4} + \sqrt{x-3})\] Now solve this..

  30. waterineyes

    You will be left with: \[\sqrt{x+4}- \sqrt{x-3} = \sqrt{x+4} + \sqrt{x-3}\] Now look it properly what is the term that is getting cancelling on both the sides???

    sqrt(x + 4).

    See @pratu043 if we are given with: \[\large (x-1)(y-2) = 0\] then you can do directly this: \[(x - 1) =0 \quad and \quad (y - 2) = 0\] Getting???

    So at the end we are left with: \[4(x-3) = 0\] As \(4 \ne 0\) So, You can put directly: \[(x-3) = 0\] \[x = 3\]
