Solve for x: <spa

Answer :



…(squaring both sides)


6x + 7 = 4x2 – 28x + 49


0 = 4x2 – 28x – 6x – 7 + 49


4x2 – 34x + 42 = 0


2x2 – 17x + 21 = 0


2x2 – 14x – 3x + 21 = 0


2x(x – 7) –3(x – 7) = 0


(x – 7) (2x – 3) = 0


x – 7 = 0 or 2x – 3 = 0


x = 7 or x = 3/2


checking: when x = 7, in (i),



√49 – (14 – 7) = 0


7 – 7 = 0 True


When x = 3/2, in (i)




4 + 4 ≠ 0 false


so, x = 7 is answer.
