Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^{1/2}+3x^{1/2}54x^{3/2}=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{x}+\frac{ 3 }{ \sqrt{x} }\frac{ 54 }{ \left( \sqrt{x} \right)^3 }=0\] \[put~\sqrt{x}=t\] \[t+\frac{ 3 }{ t }\frac{ 54 }{ t^3 }=0\] \[multiply~ by ~t^3\] \[t^4+3t^254=0\] put t^2=y \[y^2+3y54=0\] \[y^2+9y6y54=0\] y=? then t=? x=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need to learn how to factor out the negative exponent :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2he supposed that t^2 = y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so t^4 is same as t^2 times t^2 replace t^2 with y y times y = y^2 :=)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know how to use the substitution method, im just a little confused with how x^1/2 was fatored out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what's the lowest exponent of x ? that would be your common factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wait i'll give you an example 2x^2+3x <x^1 degree would be common factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what is common factor in ur equation ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes right!\[\huge\rm x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }+ 3x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2}+54x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }\] take out the common factor when you take out x^{3/2} from x^{1/2} what will ou have left ?\[x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2}(??????????????)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in other words divide all 3 terms by common factor \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } }{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } }+\frac{ 3x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } }{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } }+\frac{ 54x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } }{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2remember when we divide same bases we should `subtract `their exponents (exponent rule) \[ \huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{mn}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^ thats ringing a bell

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2example \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^2 }{ x^1}=x^{21}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats making such more sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\huge\rm \color{ReD}{ \frac{ x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } }{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } }}+\frac{ 3x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } }{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } }+\frac{ 54x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 } }{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }}\] look at first term bases are the same so subtract their exponents \[\huge\rm \color{Red}{x^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(\frac{ 3 }{ 2 })}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think i get it now, ou have to diivide all by it, that reduces it to the ax^2+bx+c
