I need help with these two equations:

X+1/3=3

and:

(X+5)^2 = (2X-3)^2

Re: Help with Math homework, please .

Which portions of these problems do you not understand? Do you not understand how to get started or do you not know which algebraic method to use?

Re: Help with Math homework, please .

(1) x+1/3=3
x=3-1/3
x= 8/3

(2) (X+5)^2 = (2X-3)^2
x+5=2x-3 or x+5=3-2x

x+5=2x-3 ==> 2x-x=5+3 ==> x=8

x+5=3-2x ==> x+2x=3-5 ==> 3x=-2 ==> x=-2/3
