Algebra

posted by on .

I have never had algebra and cannot figure out how to work through the problem below
[(x + 1)² - (2x + 1)]1/2 + 2|x| - 6 = 0

Can you show me the steps for solving the problem?

  • Algebra - ,

    I'm not sure whether the 1/2 is supposed to be multiplied or you forgot a sign before it.

    IxI = absolute value of x

    Get rid of parentheses first.

    [(x + 1)² - (2x + 1)] = x^2 +2x +1 - 2x - 1 = x^2

  • Algebra - ,

    (x+5)(x+2)=X2+7x+10
