    You can square both sides, to start with.

    oh do you just need x by itself? i thought you wanted like actual values. ok phew

    getting x by itself is getting the actual values.

    it would be a numerical value. Determined by unknown d and variable y.

    well squaring both sides would get you (squareroot 4x-y) ^2 = (3d)^2

  21. mercedies

    how do you get ^2

  22. joshi
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 0

    and 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

  32. joshi

    so 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

  33. mercedies
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so you square the 3d

    yup and also the sqrt 4x-y

  35. mercedies
    • 3 years ago

    so would it be 9d

    9d^2 but yeah

    did you also square the other side?

  39. mercedies
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so would it be 16x-y^2

  40. joshi
    • 3 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 0

    no because remember its squareroot of 4x-y already. so squaring it gets you squareroot of 4x-y times squareroot of 4x-y which is just 4x-y

    so 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
