you can just use parentheses like this

(x^2+9)       or use the  LaTex function...

\(\sqrt{x^2+9}\)   + 3   = x+4      simplify by subtracting 3 from both sides of the equation

 

sqrt(x^2+9) = x+1        Now square both sides

x^2 + 9  = (x+1)^2       Now expand the R side

x^2 + 9 = x^2 + 2x +1  Subtract x^2 from both sides

9 = 2x+1 

8=2x

x=4
