How do you solve #(s+1)^2/10-12/5=15/2#?
We want to isolate the
On the left hand side, the
And on the right hand side, we need to find a common denominator to add the fractions:
Next we multiple both sides by 10 to isolate the
Square root both sides of the equation
NOTE: When taking the square root of any term, the answer can be both negative (-) and positive (+). When you raise a negative number to the second (2) power, the negative multiplies out to give a positive answer.
Now, simplifying the answer, and subtracting 1 from both sides
9 is a perfect square, with a square root value of 3, so the answer can be simplified to
