not sure..
  • phi
how about the right side of the = sign ? what is 5*5 ?
25
  • phi
on the left use the rule that a sqrt times itself makes the square root "go away" in other words, sqrt(x) * sqrt(x) is x no matter how complicated x is.
-6
  • phi
All we want is the left side squared. here are some examples sq rt(1+2+3)* sq rt (1+2+3) = 1+2+3 or sq rt(x^2 * 30y)* sq rt (x^2*30y) = x^2*30y what is sq rt (x^2-x-5) * sq rt (x^2-x-5) ?
  • phi
do you need more examples of what happens when you square a square root ?
no:)
  • phi
in that case what is sq rt (x^2-x-5) * sq rt (x^2-x-5) ?
-5,6
  • phi
I have not solved this, so I don't know off hand. You can learn to solve it or you can try substituting in possible answers and see if they work.
