i am really trying is this correct.

solve:

5(x-2)^2 = 3

MY ANSWER THAT I GOT IS:

X = 2 +- (SQRT (3) )/(5)

no.

5(x-2)^2 = 3

(x-2)^2 = 3/5

x-2 = +- sqrt (3/5)
x= 2 +- sqrt (3/5)

so the whole fraction of 3/5 is inside the sqrt


yes

    Is this correct: Solve: (x+5)^2 = 3 I get: x = -5 (+/-) sqrt (3) Problem #2 Solve: 5(x-2)^2 = 3 I get: x = 3 (+/-) ((sqrt(3))/(5) No on the second. YOu have take the sqrt5 slso, so x= 2+- sqrt(3/5) correct on the first.
