  1. as drwls laid out, square both sides, then solve the quadratic.

  2. I have the answer as x=4 is that right?

  3. The -4 - 2 on the right looks suspicious. Did you really mean to write
    x = sqrt(10x-4) -2 ?

    The correct answer depends upon where the parentheses go.

    4 is a correct answer,if the sqrt is taken of 10x -4. There is also another root.
