    3z-1+2√z=32
    This equation gets solved when we assume the z as any variable's2 and turn that into a quadratic form.
    Is there any other way of solving this equation?

    Well, when we square stuff, which ammounts to basically the same thing:

    [itex]3z-33=-2\sqrt{z}\Longrightarrow 9z^2-198z+1089=4z\Longrightarrow 9z^2-202z+1089=0\Longrightarrow z_1=13.444\,,\,\,z_2=9[/itex] .

    As many times with these exercises, only the second number above is a solution to the original equation.

    Thanks :D
    But, the assumption thing looks simple enough.
