# How would you simplify #sqrt(2x+3) - sqrt(x+1 )=1#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

You must mean how to solve. I'll solve the equation for you.

#### Explanation:

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
