Answer:

Your final answer is x=1.62788205961

Explanation:

(I will refer to the left side of the equation as A and the right side as B) You need to isolate x by dividing B by x. Then do the opposite to A. Subtract .25 from A and add .25 to B. You should now have #1.5x^2=1.6+0.25#. Then divide A by 1.5 and multiply B by 1.5. You should now have #x^2=2.4+.25#. B should now equal 2.65. Now do the square root of everything: #sqrt(x^2=2.65)#. Your final answer is x=1.62788205961
