# Algebra

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?

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
