Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2\sqrt{4}2x=2x\] Rearrange.\[2\sqrt{4}2=2xx\]\[\boxed{x=2\sqrt{4}2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0jhannybean, the 2x is also the under the radical. so can we really send it to the other side ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so your function is \(2\sqrt{42x}= 2x\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Then we would have to begin by squaring both sides. OUr goal is to isolate the x's to one side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(2\sqrt{42x})^2 = (2x)^2\]\[4(42x) = 44x+x^2\]\[168x=44x+x^2\]\[x^24x+8x=164\]\[x^2+4x12=0\]Can you factor this now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um is it (x + 2)(x  6) = 0 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(x+2)(x6) = x^2 4x12 \ne x^2+4x12\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i think i got it is it (x  2)( x + 6 ) ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we simplify like this : x  2 = 0 x = 2 and x + 6 = 0 x =  6 so the answer is x = 2, 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is similar, \[\sqrt{5x  x } = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do we solve this ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Square both sides first, right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Again, we want to isolate x so we need to square both sides. Same method.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldnt it just be like 4x = 0 at the end? xD or just plain out 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sorry , made a mistake again i meant \[\sqrt{5x}  x = 0 \]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldnt that be the same outcome?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{5x}x=0\]\[\sqrt{5x}=x\]\[(\sqrt{5x})^2=x^2\]\[5x=x^2\]\[x^25x=0\]\[x(x5)=0\]\[x=0\]\[x5=0 \iff x=5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@BweadedChicken no, not the same outccome.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh that was it ? i thought we need to complete the square and all any way , thank you you're the best :)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, completing the square comes along with complex quadratic functions that need to be simplified. You'll know when you see them.
