are you asking to solve for (3x 1 ) squared= 2 ?

if so then just use foil or box technique to multiply (3x 1) against itself to get
9x^2 6x +1 = 2
subtract 2 from both side to get
9x^2  6x 1 = 0
and then use quadratic formula to solve for x because i don't think you can factor this unless missing something

or, with less work,
(3x1)^2 = 2
3x1 = ±√2
3x = 1±√2
x = (1±√2)/3
