I am totally not understanding this rearanging business
I have this, And I have to solve for X. The reason I am having trouble is because idk what to do with all the stuff that is in the square root...
umm...yeh...
What is the x+5 on the right doing? Is that part of the step? or the one in the middle part of the step? Yeh, im really confused.
Is this what im supposed to do next? ~_~.
$\displaystyle
1 = (\sqrt{x+5})^2 = x
$
then
$\displaystyle
1 = x^2+25 = x
$
then
$\displaystyle
-24 = x^2 = x
$
then
$\displaystyle
-24 = x
$
I am sure this is horrifically wrong.
