    Radical equation..!??

    n \in {\rm N}
    Solve in R the equation :

    \sqrt {x + \sqrt {4x + \sqrt {16x + \sqrt {4^n x + 3} } } } - \sqrt x = 1

    Interesting problem. Assume the problem to be:

    \sqrt {x + \sqrt {4x + \sqrt {16x + \sqrt{ 64x+... +\sqrt {4^n x + 3} } } } } - \sqrt x = 1

    - Put \sqrt x on the RHS, square both sides, cancel out the terms  4^k x, k=0, 1, 2, ..., n , would finally get  x=4^{-n}
