How do you solve this one?

√(x + 1) = √(5x + 4)

√(x + 1) = √(5x + 4)

√(x + 1) = √5x + 4)

x + 1 = 5x + 4 {squared each side of the equation, removing the radical signs}

1 = 4x + 4 {subtracted x from each side}

-3 = 4x {subtracted 4 from each side}

x + 1 = 5x + 4 {squared each side of the equation, removing the radical signs}

1 = 4x + 4 {subtracted x from each side}

-3 = 4x {subtracted 4 from each side}

**x = -3/4**{divided each side by 4}*- Algebra House*
