Hi Gibson,

$$\\15=\frac{75\sqrt{x-3}}{\left(\frac{60}{(x-10)^2\right)}}\\\\

\frac{15}{75}=\frac{\sqrt{x-3}}{\left(\frac{60}{(x-10)^2\right)}}\\\\

\frac{3}{15}=(\sqrt{x-3})\div{\left(\frac{60}{(x-10)^2\right)}}\\\\

\frac{3}{15}=(\sqrt{x-3})\times{\frac{(x-10)^2}{60}}\\\\

\frac{3*60}{15}=(\sqrt{x-3})\times(x-10)^2}\\\\

12=(\sqrt{x-3})\times(x-10)^2}\\\\

144=(x-3)\times(x-10)^4}\\\\

144=(x-3)\times(x-10)^4}\\\\

144=(x-3)(x^4-4*10x^3+6*100x^2-4*1000x+10000)\\\\

$I'd keep going but i think I will just ask the calc$$$

** EDITED: Thanks Fiora for pointing out the error.**

I actually put it into the web2 'correctly' but I did not put a * between the brackets and the calc misinterpreted what I was saying. I now find that the web2 calc will not solve this which is interesting.

I guess WolframAlpha is always the fall back calc :)

$${\mathtt{144}} = \left({\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{3}}\right){\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\left({\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{4}}\right)}^{{\mathtt{4}}} \Rightarrow {\mathtt{0}} = {{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{5}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{19}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{4}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{144}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{3}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{544}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{1\,024}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{912}} \Rightarrow {\mathtt{0}} = {{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{5}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{19}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{4}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{144}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{3}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{544}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{1\,024}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{912}}$$

**x must be greater than 3**

You can check it with Wolfram alpha anyway :)

Hi,Melody.

I think you typed your last equation wrong.It,s 144=(x-3)*(x-4)^4

not 144=[(x-3)(x-4)]^4...so....
