#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

In order to solve this problem, we need to get rid of the square root on the left side. To do this, we square both sides:

#sqrt(x+2) = 4#

#x+2 = 16#

From here we need to get the variable alone. To do this we need to subtract 2 from both sides.

#x+2 = 16#

#x=14#

We then come to our answer.

Hope this helped!
