Square both sides,
Thus, but this problem has no real solutions (only complex). Thus, there is no solution.
How would you solve(for "x"):
the square root of 4x-12 = x
I know that you could square both sides to get rid of the square root on the left side, but I don't know how to finish the problem. (Hint: The small 2's means squared. x2 means x squared.)
square root of(4x-12)2 = (x)2
4x-12 = x2
4x = x2-12
4x-x2 = -12
What do you do after the last step?
