Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Help me solve this please. \(\sf \sqrt{ln(e^2x)+12}2=e^{ln x}\) I know that \(\sf ln e^(2x)=2x\) and \(\sf e^{ln x}=x\) So \(\sf \sqrt{2x+12} 2=x \\ \sqrt{2x+12}=x+2\) then I square on both sides to get rid off the radical: \(\sf 2x+12=(x+2)^2 \\ 2x+12=x^2+4x+4\\ 0=x^2+4x2x+412 \\ 0=x^2+2x8 \\ (x+4)(x2) \) so x=4 and x=2.. but how come the correct answer is only x=2? Did I do something wrong?
