Is there some sort of equation to use to solve this? And how can the square of an interger actually be 30 more than the integer? I am confused!

**Count Iblis**, Sunday, March 8, 2009 at 8:53pmThis means that if x is the integer, we have:

x^2 = x + 30 -->

x^2 - x - 30 = 0 --->

(x-6)(x+5)= 0 -->

x = 6 or x = -5
