Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does it look like this? \[\large \sqrt{2x+8}6=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the first step is to get the 6 to the other side. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes you add it to the 4 to get 10. but I have no idea what to do after that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now it will look like this \[\large \sqrt{2x+8}=10\] So we're going to get x out of the square root by squaring both sides. So \[\large \sqrt{2x+8}^{2}=10^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is it going to be, (2x+8)(2x+8)=20?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. \[\large \sqrt{x}^{2} = x\] So \[\large \sqrt{2x+8}^{2} = 2x+8\] And \[\large 10^{2}=10 \times 10\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 2x+8=100. and then you get ride of the 8 by subtracting on the other side and the divide by 2. would the answe be x=46?
