Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm \sqrt{x+6}5=x+1\]like this ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first we need to get rid of `5` from left side so move 5 to the right side how would you do that ? would you add ,subtract ,multiply or divide ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right add 5 both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right so \[\sqrt{x+6}=x+6\] now take square both sides to cancel out the square root \[\huge\rm (\sqrt{x+6})^2= (x+6)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1square root and square cancel each other out you will get x+6 at left side now foil (X+6)^2 (X+6)^2 is same as (x+6)(x+6) multiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that's not right there is a plus sign so you should get 3 terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1441907589514:dw multiply top two terms with the left side write ur answer in the box

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right dw:1441907646624:dw so \[\huge\rm x+6 =x^2+12x+36\]set it equal to zero move x+6 to the right side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so can i use the quadratic equation to get the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i could take out 6 times 6 out of 36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm now you can't take out 6 first move x+6 to the right side then you will qudratic equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so once i move X+6 over it would be X^2 +11X+30 right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and i could pull 5 times 6 out of 30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right find two numbers when you multiply them you should get product of AC ( a =leading coefficient , c= constant term) and when you add or subtract them you should get middle term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 5 times 6= 30 5+6=11 good to go right your answer as (x+ 1st #)(x +2nd #)
