**Henry**, Sunday, September 26, 2010 at 6:16pmb - sqrt(1 - 1996b) = 1,

Isolate the radical:

b - 1 = sqrt(1 - 1996b),

Square both sides:

b^2 - 2b + 1 = 1 - 1996b,

b^2 - 2b + 1996b = 1 - 1,

b^2 + 1994b = 0,

Factor out b:

b(b + 1994) = 0,

b = 0,

b + 1994 = 0,

b = -1994,

Solution set: b = 0, and b = -1994.
