[latex] sqrt{2x+10} - 6 = x sqrt{2(x + 5)} - 6 = x sqrt{2(x + 5)} = 2 + 6 sqrt{2(x + 5)} = 8 2 (x + 5) = 64 x + 5 = frac{64}{2} x + 5 = 32 x = 32 - 5 x = 27 [/latex] The final result is: x = 27.

(√ 2 x + 10 ) - 6 = 2 Simplify the radical equation : Add 6 to both sides √ ( 2 x + 10) - 6 + 6 = 2 + 6 √ ( 2x + 10) = 8 Square both sides (√2 x + 10 )² = 8² Refine : 2 x + 10 = 64 2 x = 64 - 10 2 x = 54 x = 54 / 2 x = 27 hope this helps!
