# How do you solve 2(sqrt x) + 5/6 = 13/6?

Jul 27, 2015

You first put all numbers to one side

#### Explanation:

Subtract $\frac{5}{6}$ on both sides:
$\to 2 \sqrt{x} = \frac{8}{6} = \frac{4}{3}$

Now divide both sides by $2$:
$\to \sqrt{x} = \frac{2}{3}$

Then, square both sides:
$\to {\sqrt{x}}^{2} = x = {\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)}^{2} = {2}^{2} / {3}^{2} = \frac{4}{9}$

$\to x = \frac{4}{9}$
