Did I do this problem correctly?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The √ sign extends over x+3 only. Solve for x.

√(x+3) + 3 = 9

3. The attempt at a solution

subtract 3 from each side

√(x+3) = 6

√(33 + 3) = 6

√36 = 6

x = 33
