Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh so I have to solve this!! Okay so for the den of 2a I do 2^2? Or 2x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1solve for t, then plug back to t = x^2 to solve for x. I let you finish the stuff.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, but where did you get 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1From " complete the square" procedure. Rule: 32/2 =16, hence 16 is the number I need to + its square and then  its square.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I didnt need to plug this into a quadratic?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You did. But the way to solve this problem is not just this, you have many many steps to get the answer. I know it is not easy but no choice for you. Take steps. Understand each step first. So far so good now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, I solve it for you as sample. You follow each step and see the reason why we have to do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\( t^2 32 t 144 > 0\\t^2 32t +16^2 16^2 144 >0\\(t16)^2 > 400 \\(t16)^2 >20^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hence \(t 16 > 20 ~~or ~~t16 <20 \) Case 1: if t 16 >20 , then t 16 20 > 0 . That is t 36 >0 Recall \( t = x^2\) , hence \(x^2 36 > 0\) You can't solve directly from here. You MUST derive like \(x^2 36 > 0\\(x6)(x + 6 ) >0 \) For this case, both (x6) and (x+6) must be the same sign. That is if (x6) >0, (x+6) >0 also. Because (+) *(+) >0 if (x6) <0, then (x+6) <0 also, since ()*() = positive >0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If both are >0 , that is x6 >0, x > 6 AND x +6 >0, x > 6 , combine them, you just have x > 6
