(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I need to find the point at which these functions intersect:

y = -sqrt(x)

y = x - 6

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I set them to equate:

-sqrt(x) = x - 6

-sqrt(x) - x + 6 = 0

Now how do I find the root?
