Homework Help: algbera

Posted by kozy on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 5:22pm.

In solving the equation (x + 3)(x + 1) = 48, Eric stated that the solution would be
x + 3 = 48 => x = 45
or
(x + 1) = 48 => x = 47
However, at least one of these solutions fails to work when substituted back into the original equation. Why is that? Please help Eric to understand better; solve the problem yourself, and explain your reasoning.
