The concentration of a certain chemical in a full water tank depends on the depth of the water. At a depth that is x feet below the top of the tank, the concentration is 3 + 4/sqrt(5-x) parts per million, where 0 < x < 4. To the nearest 0.1 foot, at what depth is the concentration equal to 6 parts per million ?


A : 2.4 ft
B : 2.5 ft
C : 2.8 ft
D : 3.0 ft
E : 3.2 ft

6 parts per million=3 + 4/sqrt(5-x)
3= 4/sqrt(5-x)--->3sqrt(5-x)=4--->9(5-x)=16-->x~approx =3.2
Hence E!
