Easy.

Say I was going to do

____

\/ 2 =1.41....

So then you square the left side

2=1.41....

And then you square the other side

2=2

(When you square root a number and you square it, you end up with the original number)

### What is the square root of 2x plus 1 equals 3?

The answer will depend on how far the square root sign goes.If you want to solve for "x", I suggest you isolate the square root on the left (if it only covers the "2x" part, move the "1" to the other side of the equation). Then, if you square both sides of the equation, you get a formula which you can easily convert to a form which can be solved with the quadratic equation.
