Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0square both sides, you'll get x+52sqrt(x^2+4x5)+x1=4 which simplifies as sqrt(x^2+4x5)=x now square both side again, you get x^2+4x5=x^2 which gives x=5/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, u put both radicals on one side, and 2 on the other side, which gives sqr(x+5)sqrt(x1)=2
