Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{x+4}3=1\] get rid of the 3 on the left side of the equation, by adding 3 to both sides. so..\[\sqrt{x+4}3+3=1+3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by raising the square root to a power of 2, you pretty much undo it all so you're left with x+4=16
