hi,

can anyone show me how to solve this:

x^(3/2) + (1+x^3)^(1/2)

i want to get it to so that there's only 1 term of x. but i don't know how to expand the squared root. any help is appreciated.

You have

$$\sqrt{x^3} + \sqrt{1+x^3} =0$$

??

put one member on the other side, square both side.

no, that's the problem. i don't have it "=0". i just have one to simplify the expression.

First of all, please do not double post. People will help you if you post once. Secondly, I have already responded to this post in another section.
