## Answers ( )

The possible values of x are 2.5 and 0.5Step-by-step explanation:The given expression is √16 – 3x = x – 6

Solving the expression to find the possible values of x:√16 – 3x = x – 6

Keep x terms on one side and constants on another side,√16 + 6 = 3x+x

4x = √16 + 6 ——-(1)√16 should be simplified as a whole number,√16 = √4² or √(-4)²

The term √16 can be replaced by either +4 or -4:Put √16 as +4 in eq(1),4x = 4+6

4x = 10

x = 10/4

x = 5/2x = 2.5Put √16 as -4 in eq(1),4x = -4+6

4x = 2

x = 2/4

x = 1/2x = 0.5
