2+ the square root of 4x=x
what is your question?
ok lets start by arranging everything so its easier to solve..
u want to put the square root(4x)on one side of the equation and the 2 on the other side...
square root(4x) = x  2;
now..to get rid of the square root..u have to square both sides..i.e both sides have to be raised by the power of 2
4x = (x  2)^2
use the formula (ab)^2 = a^2 2ab+ b^2
and solve...
see if u can get this far..and actually continue to solve it
good luk!
