**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 5:50pmWhat part of my work don't you understand?

u - √2 = 3

u - 1.414 = 3

u = 4.414

- math..solve for u again. -

**jasmin**, Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 6:01pmsorry. u-2√u=3

- yes, 9 is right -
**Damon**, Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 8:06pmlet x = sqrt u

then

x^2 - 2 x = 3

x^2 - 2 x - 3 = -

(x-3)(x+1) = 0

x = 3 or x = -1

try sqrt u = 3 then u = 9

9 - 6 = 3 Yes

try sqrt u = -3 , that is an imaginary number, forget it

so

u = 9
