# How do you solve # sqrt (9x+1) + 6= 2x#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

Rewrite this equation as a *quadratic* and proceed to solve for

#### Explanation:

Before doing anything else, isolate the radical term on one side of the equation.

To do that, add

Now square both sides of the equation to get rid of the radical term

Move all your terms to one side of the equation to get

Use the *quadratic formula* to determine the two solutions ofr this equation

Check to see if both solutions satisfy the *original* equation. Since both solutions are *positive*, the radical term will **always** be positive, so all you really need to check is whether or not the right side of the equation is positive as well.
