math,correction

is this correct:

solve:

5(x-2)^2=3

My answer:

(10 +/- sqrt 15)/(5)

looks like you expanded, then used the formula and you got the right answer properly reduced.
I think you are getting this!!!

I don't want to confuse you but I would have done the following:

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

test it with a calculator, you'll get the same decimal answer.

so my answer should like your or mine?

    When I solve the inquality 2x^2 - 6 < 0, I get x < + or - sqrt(3) So how do I write the solution? Is it (+sqrt(3),-sqrt(3)) or (-infinity, sqrt(3))? Why? Thanks. So would this work? abs x < ( sqrt 3 ) or - sqrt 3

    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

    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

    So I am supposed to solve this without using a calculator: Sqrt[20]/10 - Sqrt[10]/Sqrt[32] - Sqrt[0.3125] + Sqrt[3 + 1/5] You can put this into WolframAlpha as is to make it prettier. Answer given is 1/2 * SQRT(5) I really don't
