Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x  9)^2 = 1 (x  9) (x  9) = 1 Now expand the brackets. (x  9) (x  9) = 1 x^2  18x + 81 = 1 Move the 1 across the equal sign x^2  18x + 81 = 1 x^2  18x + 80 = 0 Factor x^2  18x + 80 = 0 (x  8) (x  10) = 0 x = 8 or 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0method 2: \[(x9)^2=1\\ \therefore x9=\pm1\\ \therefore x9=1\qquad\qquad x9=1\\ \therefore x=8\qquad\qquad\qquad x=10 \]
