It isn't. When x = -2, the left hand side is √2 and the right hand side is -√2. They are not equal.

√(x^2 + x) = √(x^2 (1 + 1/x)) = |x|√(1 + 1/x)

If you don't mention the absolute value for x, the answer won't be correct.

actually it is not valid.....need either x ≥ 0 or | x |√ ( 1 + 1 / x ) for x in (-∞ , -1] U [ 0 , ∞)

sqrt(x^2 + x) = x • sqrt(1 + 1/x)

(x^2 + x) = x^2•(1 + 1/x)

x^2 + x = x^2 + x

Because x^2 + x = x^2 (1 + 1/x) = x^2 + x QED

Square both sides and you'll see they are equal.

sqrt(x^2 + x)

= sqrt(x^2(x + (1/x)))

= sqrt(x^2)*sqrt(x + (1/x))

If x >= 0, that's the same as x*sqrt(x + (1/x))

That also works if x = -1.

But for other values of x, those two are NOT the same.
