What is the solution set of (3x - 1)2 = 5?


Question: What is the solution set of (3x - 1)2 = 5?

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

Answer: x = 7/6

An equation is like a weighing balance with equal weights on both sides. If we add or subtract the same number from both sides of an equation, it still holds.

Explanation:

(3x - 1)2 = 5

6x - 2 = 5

Add 2 on the both sides of the equation 6x - 2 = 5.

6x - 2 + 2 = 5 + 2

6x = 7

Divide the both sides of the equation 6x = 7 by 6.

x = 7/6

So, the required value of x is 7/6
