To determine

To calculate: The expression 2(1+x)12x(1+x)12x+1

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 77E

  2(1+x)12x(1+x)12x+1=2+x(1+x)32

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression is 2(1+x)12x(1+x)12x+1

Consider the expression as 2(1+x)12x(1+x)12x+1

Now,

  2(1+x)12x(1+x)12x+1=21+xx1+xx+1=2(1+x)x1+xx+1=2+2xx(1+x)12(1+x)=2+x(1+x)32

Therefore, simplest form of the expression 2(1+x)12x(1+x)12x+1=2+x(1+x)32
