Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can square both sides, to start with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh do you just need x by itself? i thought you wanted like actual values. ok phew

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0getting x by itself is getting the actual values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i meant like a numerical value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be a numerical value. Determined by unknown d and variable y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have know idea what to do

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did you square both sides?

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean? well i got 4xy=9d^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{4xy}=3d\]ummm

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need to solve for x

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well squaring both sides would get you (squareroot 4xy) ^2 = (3d)^2

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and so now you're squaring a square root. it's like (squareroot of 4)^2 square root of 4 is 2 right? so it would be 2^2 which is 4 again. so basically if you're squaring a square root, you're not really doing anything so the square root and square cancel each other out if that makes sense

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you get how to square both sides then?

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk this is my first time doing this or a problem like this

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok well have you done questions like this: x^2 = 25

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah this question is pretty much the same thing

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in the x^2=25 you basically square rooted both sides. so square root of x^2 = square root of 25 x=5 but it in this question you have to square both sides, give it another try

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yup and also the sqrt 4xy

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did you also square the other side?

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be 16xy^2

joshi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no because remember its squareroot of 4xy already. so squaring it gets you squareroot of 4xy times squareroot of 4xy which is just 4xy

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you solve it now? you just have to get x by itself

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would the square roots still be there

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would look like 4xy=9d

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well you should also probably ask your teacher this too cause in math it's really important to know why things happen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk i dont have a teacher

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well my mom is my teacher but my mom is in the hospital

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i get x by it's self

joshi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry if you dont mind me asking, what grade are you in? like technically, like your age

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in an equation whatever you do to one side, you have to do to another. so you could add y to both sides which would get you 4x by itself

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry again, (none of my business i know) but why don't you go to school?

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what i got was 4x=9dy drama and lot of fighting

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's right except that it's d^2 not just d

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, well i'm sorry. hope it works out, whatever it is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you well we are having hard times my bf just got put in jail for a year

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0aww :/ Imagine all the people, living life in peace... *swaying to the awesome music* sorry, only thing i could think of

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol thank you hes only 15

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought you couldn't go to jail unless you're an adult? well i suppose different countries

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya well i live in hawaii so there is only two jails and one prison and a whole lot of bad kids they do what they have to

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh the kids do what they have to?

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya well know that i look back at what happened it is his own problem

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh. well anyways good luck. time heals

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya kk so know what do i do with 4x=9d^2y

joshi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i thought you'd solved it. well think about, this time entire time you've been doing things to both sides. how would you get x by itself this time?

mercedies

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you divide 4 on both sides

mercedies
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because what happens on one side you do to the other

joshi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah! exactly! :D good job

mercedies
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you so it would be 2.25 d^2y

joshi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait what? so i had 4x=9d^2 + y and so x= (9d^2 + y)/4

mercedies
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya and that is what i did then i divided 9/4=2.25
