 Question 307618: What are the correct steps of solving this problem sqrt( 4x-1 )= sqrt( 3x+5 ) I just want to make sure but i assume to square both sides to cancel the square root making them 4x-1 = 3x+5 and then subtracting the 3x making it 1x-1= 5 then add the one making it 1x = 6 then divide by one making it x = 6 Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15649)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!hat are the correct steps of solving this problem sqrt( 4x-1 )= sqrt( 3x+5 ) I just want to make sure but i assume to square both sides to cancel the square root making them 4x-1 = 3x+5 and then subtracting the 3x making it 1x-1= 5 then add the one making it 1x = 6 then divide by one making it x = 6 : You don't need to bother to divide by 1, but that is correct, you can confirm this on your calc: Enter = 4.7958... Enter = 4.7958...
