    Let's solve your equation step-by-step. 3x1 2 + 5x1 4 −2=0 Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation. 3x1 2 + 5x1 4 −2=0 Simplify: (Show steps) 11 4 x−2=0 Step 2: Add 2 to both sides. 11 4 x−2+2=0+2 11 4 x=2 Step 3: Multiply both sides by 4/11. ( 4 11 )*( 11 4 x)=( 4 11 )*(2) x= 8 11 Answer: x= 8 11

    solve for m then remember this is x^1/4 and solve for x

    the graph shows 0.333 which is 1/3 and -2 then the -2 is thrown out I guess because cannot have the square root of a negative
