If I have (2+/-Sqrt(8))/2

I know that x can either equal 2.41 or -0.14

However, my textbook is giving me the answers as 1+Sqrt(2) and 1-Sqrt(2)

I understand where the 1+/- comes from, but how are they getting Sqrt(2)?

I hope you can understamd what I mean. I'm confised, so I wasn't sure how to word the question correctly, but I hope you can see where I am having trouble.

Thank you.
