Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering how you would go about solving for x in an equation like [itex]\sqrt{ax+b}[/itex]+[itex]\sqrt{mx+n}[/itex]=C (where a,b,m, and n are constant numbers). The problem is if you square the expression you just end up with some linear terms multiplied by terms to the power of 1/2. If you keep squaring you never get rid of them. So how do you go about solving something like this?

Thanks for any help
