    square both sides and get \[4x+41=(x+5)^2\] solve the resulting quadratic equation you will get two solutions one will work in the original equation, the other will not

    the two solutions are \(2\) and \(-8\) in the original equation 2 works and -8 does not, so -8 is the "extraneous" solution
