Solve `(1/2x+3)^2+6=19` :

`(1/2x+3)^2+6=19`

`(1/2x+3)^2=13` Take the square root of both sides

`1/2x+3=+-sqrt(13)`  Note that there are two answers.

`1/2x=-3+-sqrt(13)`

`x=-6+-2sqrt(13)`

---------------------------------------------------------------

The answers are `x=-6+2sqrt(13),-6-2sqrt(13)`

---------------------------------------------------------------
