How do you solve #(x+1)^2-9/4=0#?
Being a second-order equation, their are two solutions
First, move the right-most term to the right side of the equation
Now, take the square root of each side. Don't forget that there will be two roots to the right side:
So, the answers are
While you could multiply out the bracket and then simplify and factorise the quadratic trinomial, an easier method is to realize that
Consider each factor being equal to 0.
