really simple question Watch

1. whilst working through a C4 paper as part of a question 2(x * 3/x1/2) = 6x1/2

2. basically that is not clear but the question is asking you to square x + 3/x^1/2 and i can not get all the factors
thankyou

If the LHS is 2(x + 3)/(x^0.5), I'm getting x = 3 here. I don't think you have to square anything! Could you link to the question please?
This isn't an equation to solve. The OP's asking how to get from the LHS to the RHS. Oh and it was not
5. its okay now sorry its not very clear and i managed to work it out

Sorry, got a little confused by the second post... But getting from LHS to RHS is pretty simple, OP! It's just 2 * 3 after all :P
Yeah don't worry so did I, I think the OP was trying to say they had to expand and were stuck on simplifying that part.

The OP has since changed her target to - so the indices themselves were the problem, I think.
