    Add 15 to both sides and then square both sides.

    I'm still kind of confused

    Did you add 15 to both sides?

    \[\sqrt{2x+13} = x + 15\]

    What do you get if you square the left side?

    \[(\sqrt{2x=13})^2= ?\]

    \[\large{\sqrt{2x+13}-15=x}\]\[\large{\sqrt{2x+13}=x+15}\]Now squaring both sides we get\[\large{2x+13=x^2+225+30x}\]

    You must not square each side. So now it will look like this: \[(\sqrt{2x+13})^2=(x+15)^2\]

    \[\large{2x+13=x^2+225+30x}\]\[\large{\implies x^2+30x-2x+225-13=0}\]\[\large{\implies x^2+28x+212=0}\]Now solve it by factoring :)

    You two were both telling me different things. How do I know that yours it right?

    It won't factor. You'll have to use the quadratic formula.

    I tried factoring and it didn't work. So I plug x^2 + 28x + 212 into the quadratic formula?

    I think it should be \(-14+2i\) \(\&\) \(-14-2i\)
