1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data How many real solutions does the equation √x+5=x have? 2. Relevant equations n/a 3. The attempt at a solution I squared both sides so I got x+5=x^2 then I formed a quadratic equation: x^2-x-5=0 I got two real solutions but the answer is one. I know it has something to do with x+5 being sqrooted but I don't know how to go about solving it.
