How would you simplify #sqrt(2x+3) - sqrt(x+1 )=1#?
You must mean how to solve. I'll solve the equation for you.
Always check the solutions in the original equation to make sure they aren't extraneous. If they do not work in the original equation, you must reject them.
So, x = 3 works. Now, let's check x = -1:
So, x = -1 works as well.
Your solution set would be x = 3, -1
- Solve for x.
