 Oct30 comment The intuition behind slant asymptotes I used both because I wasn't sure which one is most widely used. Oct19 comment Why is $x^{\log_x n}=n$? +1 Yes, I've now understood exactly what you meant. Thanks for the comment. Oct19 comment Why is $x^{\log_x n}=n$? It means that $5^{a}=17$, but $a$ in this case is an irrational number, no? Sep27 comment Why should you never divide both sides by a variable when solving an equation? Thanks for the comments; they both helped me understand the problem more. Sep27 comment Why should you never divide both sides by a variable when solving an equation? +1 Thanks for explaining it perfectly. May28 comment Solving $\sqrt{x+5} = x - 1$ +1 Thanks, that's what I was confused about before, because I thought they where solutions, not potential solutions. May25 comment Solving $\sqrt{x+5} = x - 1$ Kevin Reid, thanks for taking the time to convert my images into LaTeX. I was actually planning to do it but I guess the community was ahead of me :) May25 comment Solving $\sqrt{x+5} = x - 1$ I didn't understand your answer. Why do you have 3 lines showing 4 = 4 and two lines showing 0 = 0? May24 comment Solving $\sqrt{x+5} = x - 1$ But what is the reason it implies the absolute value? May24 comment Solving $\sqrt{x+5} = x - 1$ Hah, just realized I could have inputted the LaTeX directly in the post instead of fiddling around with the CodeCogs Equation Editor.
