x = 8√x     square both sides

 

x^2  = 64x        subtract 64x from both sides

 

x^2 - 64x  = 0     factor

 

x ( x - 64)  = 0

 

Set both factors to 0  and solve for x    and x  = 0   or x = 64

 

 

x + 10 = 7√x     square both sides

 

(x + 10)^2  =  49x

 

x^2 + 20x + 100  = 49x      subtract 49x from both sides

 

x^2 - 29x + 100  = 0        factor

 

(x - 25)  (x - 4)  = 0        set both factors to 0 and solve for x....so

 

x  = 25    and x  = 4

 

 

 

cool cool cool
