## ExtremeAnon 3 years ago √(6x+5)= √53

1. ExtremeAnon

$\LARGE \sqrt{6x+5} = \sqrt{53}$

3. surdawi

square both sides what do you get?

4. hba

Squaring both sides Would Help :)

5. ExtremeAnon

Idk, I don't know how to square a square root??

6. surdawi

$\left( \sqrt{a} \right)^2$

7. surdawi

$\left( \sqrt{a} \right)^2=a$

8. surdawi

6x + 5 = 53

9. surdawi

does that help?

10. surdawi

@ExtremeAnon you there?

11. hba

$(6x+5)^{1/2}=(53)^{1/2}$

12. hba

Now Squaring both sides :)

13. hba

$[(6x+5)^{1/2}]^2=[(53)^{1/2}]^2$

16. ExtremeAnon

i don't understand a lick of what y'all just posted... can you explain?

_/-(6x+5)=_/-53 _/-(x+5)^2=_/-53^2 6x+5=53 6x=48 x=8

18. Jeans123

_/-= The square root of (since there is not a button for that). ^= The exponent.

19. Jeans123

When you square both sides the square roots go away.

20. Jeans123

Did that help at all?

21. ExtremeAnon

Yes. Thank you so much :D

@jeans123 Please take a look at the CoC.
