Solve each equation.
1. x - 1 = √(x+2) + 3
2. 2x^2 - 6x + 5 = 0
I'm not sure how to do these?
Lets start by doing some rearranging:
can be rearranged as
I can then take the square of both side (to get rid of that pesky squareroot)
Can you take it from there?
You will not get a perfect factor and will have to use the quadratic formula to find a solution. The same holds true for your second problem.
