Choose any four (4) of the five radical equations below. Solve each equation, showing all steps
leading to your answer. Then check your answer to determine if any of the solutions are
extraneous
1. √5x  x = 0
2. √(2x + 1) + 1 = x
3. √(3x  2) + 3 = 4x
can someone please help me solve it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0steps isolate the radicand to one side of the equation. remember whatever you do to one side also do to the other square each side to get rid of the radicand and maintain the balance isolate the terms with the variable to one side simplify if possible divide by the coefficient of the variable take a minute to review then I'll walk you through one after which you can try the others on your own and I will verify if you show your work and ask me to

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0problem 3 the radicand is labeled to isolate by subtracting 3 square each side and simplify. this gives a quadratic we can solve by factoring/completing the square/ graphing/matrices or using the formula. minor note to the steps I wrote if it was a linear equation divide by the coefficient of the variable if like in this case you have a quadratic solve using one of the 5 methods

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isn't 2 + 9 = 11 ? since 3x  2 = 16x^2  24x + 9 16x^2  24x  3x + 9 + 2 = 16x^2  27x + 11 ?
