Solve: x= sqrt(10x-4-2)

  • Math -

    The last time I checked, -4 -2 = 6.
    Check to make sure you did not omit some parentheses that would change the maning of what you wrote

    Square both sides of the equation and solve the resulting quadratic.

    x^2 - 10x +6 = 0

    The problem is solve x= sqrt10x-4-2

    I solved the equation below and got an answer of 9+-sqrt(57) but i don;t belive this is correct. help please. 5-sqrt(8x+1)=x 8x+1=x^2-10x+25 0=x^2-10x+25-8x-1 0=x^2-18x+24 then i completed the sqare got 9+-sqrt(57) THANKS SO MUCH
