math,correction

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.

    Solve for s: h=(square root of 3)times s/2 and solve for h V= (pi)r squared h / 3 Solve for s: h=(square root of 3)times s/2 Multiply both sides by 2. 2h = (sqrt 3)*s*2/2 which cancels the 2 on the right. 2h = (sqrt 3)*s Now
