Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by John on Tuesday, November 13, 2007 at 6:30pm.

Two more I would like to check my work on:
Solve using the square root property:
(x+6)^2 = 4
x+6 = sqrt4 x+6 = -sqrt4
x+6 = 2 x+6 = -2
x+6-6 = 2-6 x+6-6 = -2-6
x = 4 x = -8


Solve by completing the square:
x^2+6x+1=0
x^2+6x+1-1 = 0-1
x^2+6x = -1
x^2+6x+9 = -1+9
(x+3)^2 = -1+9
(x+3)^2 = 8
sqrt(x+3)^2 = sqrt8
x+3 = +-sqrt8
x+3-3 = -3 +-sqrt8
x = -3 +-sqrt8
x = -3 -sqrt8 , x = -3 +sqrt8
x = -3 -2sqrt2 , x = -3 +2sqrt2
