    yeah, take square root on both sides of \((4x+1)^2=20\) what do you get ?

    4x-1=\[\sqrt{20}\] =

    that would be \(4x+1 =\pm \sqrt {20}\) ok? now subtract 1 from both sides, what u get ?

    4x=\[\pm \sqrt{20}\] - 1

    thats correct, now just divide both sides by 4 and you get 2 values of x.

    ? how ? \(4x=\pm \sqrt{20}-1 \implies x = \dfrac{\pm \sqrt{20}-1}{4}\)

    no, it'll only be \( x = \dfrac{\pm \sqrt{20}-1}{4}\) or one simplification will be \( x = \dfrac{\pm 2\sqrt{5}-1}{4}\)
