Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How can you factor \[\sqrt{4x+12}\] so that it is simplified?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know where your getting the 2x from. You may have the correct answer, but I'm not understanding what is written. What is 4/4 What is 12/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@tysonw do you know how to factor (4x + 12)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good. How would you rewrite Peachpi's example with 1x + 3 in parenthesis but has the same value as 4x + 12?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4(x+3)\] x is the same as 1x so 4*1x or 4*x = 4x and 4*3 =12 Rewrite the radical equation in the same format. For example \[\sqrt{4x +16} = 4\sqrt{x +4}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you meant to write 4 without the radical

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It should be \[4\sqrt{x+3}+\sqrt{x+3}\] Nod you need to combine like terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you have \[2 \sqrt{x+3}+1\sqrt{x+3}\] You can treat \[\sqrt{x+3}\] as a variable, so they combine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@LeibyStrauss no you have to take the square root of the 4 because it's under the radical

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I stand corrected. So the correct way is \[\sqrt{4(x+3)}= 2\sqrt{x+3}\]
