Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

AN = 21 =x+1

x=21-1 =20

NX= x^2

NX=20^2

NX= 400

AX = AN+NX = 21 +400 = 421

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

how do i solve for X???

WE KNOW THAT AN =x+1

again we know that AN= 21

THEREFORE

AN=x+1 =21

x+1=21

x=21-1

x= 20


NX= x^2

NX=20^2

NX= 400

AX = AN+NX = 21 +400 = 421
