# Pre Calc

Does this:
sqrt 3x-4=(x-4)^2-3

Multiply out to:

x^4-16x^3+90^2-211x+173

I then need to put it in the graphing calc and see what the roots are.

Someone did answer it, however, I believe that their answer is incorrect. Also, I changed my answer a bit. I'm sorry, I messed up but I am becoming very frustrated with this problem.
