5-38.
  1. Solve each equation below. Think about rewriting, looking inside, or undoing to simplify the process. Homework Help ✎

    1. 3(y + 1)2 − 5 = 43

Look at problem 5-3 for a reminder of these strategies.

y = 3 or y = −5

See part (a).

Add 3 to both sides.

Multiply both sides by y. Then finish solving.

Start by cubing both sides.
