1. joycemullins

$\sqrt{5X-2}=\sqrt{3X}$

2. viniterranova

For the first setp, take the square of both sides.

3. joycemullins

ok.....how do i do that...can those numbers be squared

4. viniterranova

sqrt(5x-2)^2=sqrt(3x)^2

5. viniterranova

When take the square you cancel out the exponent with the indice of the root.

6. viniterranova

And so you got 5x-2=3x. Just make some algebra and you will solve the equation.
